Cheesecake-Marbled Brownies

Submitted by Lea McEwan

I used a box brownie recipe

For cheesecake batter

• 8 ounces cream cheese, well softened

• 1/3 cup sugar

• 1 large egg yolk

• 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla


Make brownie batter:

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan.

Heat butter and chocolate in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderately low heat, whisking occasionally, just until melted. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla, and a pinch of salt until well combined. Whisk in flour until just combined and spread in baking pan.

Make cheesecake batter and bake brownies:

Whisk together cheesecake batter ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Dollop over brownie batter, then swirl in with a knife or spatula.

Bake as directed on box, about 55 minutes.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
