CHERRY CHEESECAKE BROWNIES

Fudgy brownies with cheesecake and premium Lucky Leaf® pie filling swirled on top!  These brownies are rich and creamy and have three delicious desserts in one!I am so excited to be an ambassador this year for Lucky Leaf pie filling!  I love working with companies that I love and that I am passionate about their product.  Lucky Leaf is a high quality and easy to use dessert product.  I love thinking of delicious recipes to create with their premium pie filling.  It really is the best!  It has no high fructose corn syrup and has more fruit inside and a lot of different flavors to chose from.   It is very convenient and versatile and a high quality product to use to simplify your baking.

Cherry pie filling is one of my all time favorite pie fillings.  And Lucky Leaf’s is bursting with big and delicious cherries inside.  You can truly see a difference in their pie filling.   So when choosing a dessert to make, I knew that I wanted to use it.  So then it came to me.  Why don’t I combine three of my favorite desserts in one!?  And that my friend, is how the Cherry Cheesecake Brownie was born!

This dessert turned out way better than expected. I could hardly wait for them to cool and set. My cherry loving 7 year old kept sneaking cherries from the top. Apparently, he couldn’t wait either!

But let me tell you. These babies are worth the wait!

My favorite part of these brownies was the cheesecake and cherry swirled on top. It looked so beautiful on top and it made these brownies look elegant and impressive. The best part about these brownies is that they are simple to make! They only take about 15 minutes to put together until they are baking in the oven.

2 (8 ounce) cream cheese

To make the topping: Beat together cream cheese, and sugar until smooth. Add in egg and vanilla and continue to beat until smooth.
To make the brownies: In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate 30 seconds at a time until melted and smooth. Stir in sugar vanilla and salt. Add in eggs and flour. Mix until incorporated.
Spread brownie mix into the bottom of your 13×9 inch prepared pan. Drop Cheesecake mixture on top followed by the Lucky Leaf Cherry Pie filling. Run a knife through the top giving it the marbled look.
