Cream Cheese Brownies

in Baking, Brownies, Recipe

I had big plans for today: work out, errands, some cooking and baking. I woke up and I went to pilates for the first time in weeks. I was planning on going for a run afterwards, but my legs were shaking, seriously. So I headed home to plan out the rest of my day. Well the rest of my day ended up being a nap and catching up on my blogs and my shows (Dateline, Toddlers and Tiaras and Friday Night Lights… yes I have very random taste). And baking these insane brownies. I love cheesecake. I love brownies. These brownies are basically heaven.

I found this recipe on one of my favorite baking sites, Brown Eyed Baker, and then found the original recipe she was using from Baking Illustrated, a really wonderful cookbook which I happen to own. This was my first time ever creating a marbled effect (using a knife tip to blend the cream cheese and the brownie) and it actually came out better than I had anticipated. The brownies are moist and just rich enough in flavor. They melt in your mouth.

Don’t be intimidated by the ingredients or long list of directions, these really were a cinch to put together. The most frustrating part was waiting 90 minutes before I could bite into them!
