Wow, a rare miss for me. The cooking temp and time in this recipe was way off for me. It was too low of heat and even after 45 minutes of cooking time, the brownies were still undercooked. So I increased the heat to 400 and let it cook for 20 minutes, and it cooked perfectly. Not the best cream cheese brownies I've had, my husband likes them though. I had to pour caramel sauce over them to make them sweet, as the brownies weren't really sweet, not sure why, I followed the recipe exactly.
Yummy! I made a reduced fat version of this recipe and it turned out GREAT! I substituted the eggs with egg beaters and I used reduced fat cream cheese. I also used 1/2 the butter and replaced the other 1/2 with unsweetened applesauce.
Ah-Mazing! ;-) I really liked these. They were fudgey just like a brownie should be, and yummy!! I was looking for a recipe that used coca powder instead of bakers chocolate, and the Betty Crocker version used both bakers choc. and an entire package of cream cheese! Thanks for this recipe! :)
The brownie base came out great but the cream cheese addition was not necessary. I guess you have to be a cream cheese lover for these.
This is so, so yummy! It is a cake-like brownie, with swirls of cheesecake-like goodness. I added a bit of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture (1/2 teaspoon) but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Made for PAC Fall 2007. Thanks, anonymous23!
These are really good! I made as posted adding the optional chopped pecans. Brownies,pecans and a cream cheese layer made for wonderful. Looking forward to serving this for dessert or with afternoon coffee. Thank you and thanks to your mom for finding Marcias's recipe and adding her special touch to make for such a delightful Cream Cheese Brownie.
