  • Crust Ingredients:
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup finely-chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Vino Cotto by Montillo Italian Foods
  • Filling Ingredients:
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).
  2. For the crust: Using a fork, mix together all the dry ingredients for the crust into a bowl. Add the melted butter and vino cotto. Thoroughly combine all ingredients.
  3. Hand press dough evenly into an ungreased 13"x9"x2" pan. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch.
  4. For the filling: In a separate bowl, add all the filling ingredients and mix until the batter is smooth. Pour filling over the crust.
  5. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the surface is deep golden brown and feels springy to the touch. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick in the middle of the pan then immediately remove it. The toothpick should come out clean when the cheesecake bars are done.
  6. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
