Cheesecake Brownies, easy

Cheesecake Brownies

(from Taste of Home magazine)
  • 1 pkg. (13x9 pan size) fudge brownie mix
  • 6 oz cream cheese (almost a full cube)
  • 6 T. butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can chocolate frosting
  1. Prepare brownie mix batter according to package directions.  
  2. Spread 2 cups into a greased 13x9 pan; set aside.  
  3. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, flour, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.  
  4. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined.  Spread evenly over brownie batter.
  5.   Top with remaining brownie batter then cut through batter with a knife to swirl.  
  6. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs (brownies may appear moist).  Cool completely and frost. 
I really can't say more about these- if you imagine these would taste good, then most likely you'll love them.  They didn't last long at our house!  I halved the recipe (my brownie mix was the smaller size) and put it into an 11x7 casserole dish and it made enough for us.  If you have a 13x9 and aren't sharing, then it's a lot of pressure to eat a lot more fast!
