Cheesecake brownies

I had been so busy with things that I had no time to sit and write a blog post for a long time. But today being my blog anniversary I felt the need to update it and to thank my readers for keeping visiting the site even when I had been MIA. This dessert was a treat Aishwarya made for her Mom and Dad who couldn't decide on a single dessert. She asked us our choice of dessert she would like to make for us and I said I wanted a cheese cake and Jai wanted a brownie. So our sweet little girl as she didn't want to disappoint either one of us found this and made this. It is sweet and wonderful as our little darling!
Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Blogaversary Sugar 'N Spice!
And once again a big THANKS to all my wonderful readers!

 Cheese cake part:

Ingredients

1 packages (8oz) cream cheese (I recommend Philadelphia 1/3 less fat cream cheese)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
Method:
Beat all filling ingredients together until well mixed and set aside.

Brownie part:

Ingredients

1 box of Ghirardelli brownie mix
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 egg

Method:
Mix ingredients until well blended. Pour into a 9"x13" greased pan.

After you have poured the brownie batter into your greased pan, start adding spoonfuls of the cream cheese layer to about 6 points spread out on the brownie layer. Then use a knife or spoon and drag it length-wise across the pan at about four points. Next, go cross-wise in the pan about 4 times. You should start seeing the marbled pattern of brownie and cream cheese combining. Do this a few more times. Repeat till you finish all the cream cheese.

Bake at 325 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly dry (keeping in mind that the cream cheese layer may stick a little more to the toothpick than batter).

Enjoy!
