This is the best of both worlds, Brownies & Cheesecake. This was one of my mother's favorites. May her spirit soar high.


1 pkg.(13x9 pan size) brownie mix
4 pkgs. (8 oz ea.) cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
3 eggs
2 squares simi-sweet baking chocolate (melted, cooled slightly)


Prep: 15 mins. Total Prep: 5 hrs. 40 mins.(incl. refrigerating) Serves 16

Preheat oven to 350

Line 13x9 baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Spray with cooking spray.

Prepare brownie batter as directed, pour into prepared pan. Bake 15 mins. or until top of brownies is shiny and center is almost set.

Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on med. speed until well blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Add eggs(1 at a time) mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended.

Pour over partially-baked brownie batter in pan. ( Filling will come almost to top of pan)
