Traci's StoryA from-scratch recipe containing the loved combination of brownies and cheesecake goodness. Mmm...mmmm...mmmm.
Like my Dad would say... it'll knock yer lips right off!
Original recipe was from the Eagle Brand Milk site, but I've converted this to use a scratch brownie recipe and a different cream cheese topping.
optional: may add 1 cup chopped nuts; may add 1/4 tsp salt
CREAM CHEESE LAYER
cream cheese, softened (2-8oz pkgs)
2 1/2 tsp
2Combine brownie ingredients by mixing the butter, sugar and vanilla well; add eggs and mix. Add flour, cocoa and baking powder, mixing until combined. If desired, you may add salt and/or nuts. Pour brownie mix into prepared pan.
3Combine cheesecake ingredients by mixing softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add in flour and eggs. Mix well and pour evenly over brownies.
4Bake for about 40-45 minutes until slightly browned and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool completely, about 1 hour, and then refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours until thoroughly chilled.
You can remove from the pan by lifting the edges of the foil; cut into bars or triangles. May opt to drizzle with chocolate syrup as a pretty garnish.
Keep refrigerated in a sealed container.
