      We love these brownies! This is the second year in a row I've made them. I use 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in place of the nuts, since I can't have them. I also like to add a little cherry extract to the cream cheese mixture. This year I also had to use half Splenda in the brownies since I didn't have quite enough sugar. They still turned out great, so I might try all Splenda next time.

      Everyone loved these! I made them a day in advance for schedule reasons and I'm glad that I did -- the texture was better the second day. I cut the recipe in half (put half a beaten egg in the filling and 2 and a half eggs in the brownie part), substituted almond extract for the vanilla, omitted the nuts, decreased the flour slightly (for a fudgier brownie) and sprinkled coconut on top. I also had a little bit of trouble getting things layered right, so it was more like a brownie with a chocolate-cherry layer on top. Thanks for posting!
