Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Philly Cheesecake Brownies

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is PHILLY CHEESECAKE BROWNIES!!

Who doesn’t love brownies? This recipe uses a boxed brownie but, sometimes, it’s just nice to whip something together fast and easy. Add the element of cheesecake to the mix and this is a special treat!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

[Makes 24]

1 pkg. (19.8 oz) fudge brownie mix
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Prepare brownie mix as directed on package.  Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan.  Beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.  Add sugar, mixing until blended.  Add egg and vanilla.  Mix just until blended.  Pour cream cheese mixture over brownie mixture.  Cut through batter with knife several times for marbled effect.  Bake at 350 degrees, 35-40 minutes or until cream cheese mixture is lightly browned.  Cool; cut into squares.  Note:  Do not use brownie mixes that include a syrup pouch.
