These brownies are wonderful. The only thing is that the cheesecake layer did not taste like cheesecake. It wasn't as dense as I thought that it would be either. It was also very good too though. I used pecans and everyone loved them. I think that the next time I will use a little bit more cream cheese. Thank you, R.F.
