Recipe by Old widow
This is a simple dessert to prepare but looks fancy and tastes divine. I used the brownie mix that includes chocolate syrup but you could use any one that is intended for an 8x8 pan. I feel that this is best used within 3 days of preparing. Cook time does not include the cooling time for the brownie layer or the chill time for the cheesecake layer. ( If your brownie mix calls for different measurements for water, oil and eggs go ahead and use those instructions for baking the brownie layer.)
- 18 1⁄2 ounces brownie mix
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 1 egg
- 11 1⁄8 ounces cheesecake mix
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling

- In a bowl mix together by hand brownie mix, oil, water and egg.
- Pour brownie batter into prepared pan.
