I fixed these for a baby shower and they went over well. They are easy to make but I did feel they were just a bit dry.

13x9 pan nice size brownie

by M. Marianne , HOMER GLEN, IL on Feb. 2008

Im always looking for recipes that go in a 13x9 pan, so that there will be enough for everyone. These are great but they went so fast, that a 13x9 pan still wasnt enough.

simply good!

This recipe is great if you want to turn a simple treat into a special dessert. The addition of the cream cheese layer makes this dessert good enough for special occasions!

Good and Easy

My seven year old wants to learn how to bake so we downloaded this recipe. Very good and very easy. She and the family were very happy with the results of her first baking experience.

Just Scrumptious

by W. Wanda , CANTON, MS on Jan. 2007

I made this recipe using a brownie mix and I add the cheesecake topping and it was just delicious. They were just wonderful. My mom called and told me to remind her to slap me next time she sees me because those brownies were some kind of good. My sister tried them ust as I had taken them out of the oven and she had to pack her some to take home.

They were GREAT!

I made these brownies that combine my favorite two desserts (brownies and cheescake) and my family ate them in a matter of minutes!

Very good!

These are very moist and delicious. I put some chocolate cream cheese frosting on top and everyone loved them. Put them out at work and they were gone in about 15 minutes. I highly recommend them!

Boy, Are These Good!

I used a brownie mix, but put the cheesecake swirl into them. Took them to a church picnic this afternoon and brought home an empty container. Everyone loved them! They are so delicious. I'll be making these again soon.

It's so delicious until, your friends and family members will be asking you to make it all the time. This is a favorite in our family!
