Cherry Cheesecake Brownies

Cherry Cheesecake Brownies

So, summer is officially over.  I’m stuck somewhere in the middle of sad for the loss of hot weather/flip flops and being overly excited for the sweater/jean legging look.  Much more flattering right now.  Side note:  Never did lose last winter’s weight gain.

Until I have a beach trip planned I’m going to eat brownies and lots of them!  Because these cherry cheesecake brownies are totally worth that tank top not fitting right!

I started with a base of brownies

Poured the cheesecake layer on and lightly ran a knife through.

Then swirled again with some cherry pie filling.

I told you I had plans for the leftover cream cheese and pie filling.  I’ve been waiting all week to make these.  All salad filled week!  The last time I combined a cheesecake and brownies was my Oreo cheesecake brownies.  Equally delicious!

Whichever ones you choose to make, just remember it’s sweater season now.  Have two!

Ingredients
  • 1 brownie mix, prepared as directed
  • 6 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup cherry pie filling
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line an 8 inch pan with foil. Spray it lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the brownie mix with ingredients listed on the box and pour into the prepared pan.
  3. In a large bowl beat the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla until combined.
  4. Pour the cream cheese mixture evenly over the brownie mix and lightly run a knife through.
  5. Drop pie filling over top and swirl them in with a knife.
  6. Bake for 60 minutes. The cheesecake should have a slight jiggle and will set nicely when it cools.
  7. Once the brownies have cooled for about an hour, refrigerate overnight.
