Cherry Cheesecake Brownies:

Moist fudgy brownie, creamy cheesecake and cherry pie filling come together to create pretty much the best brownies ever. Perfect for your sweetheart! Serves: 16

Ingredients:
Brownies

1 cup butter, melted, cooled slightly

2½ cups granulated sugar

1 tbsp vanilla

4 eggs

1½ cups whole wheat flour (or sub all-purpose)

1 cup cocoa

½ tsp salt

Cherry Cheesecake filling:
1 8oz package cream cheese

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

⅓ cup sugar

½ can cherry pie filling

Instructions:
Line a 9×13″ pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray — this makes for easy clean up. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Brownies:
In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter and sugar until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and whisk until combined.

Add flour, cocoa and salt and stir until combined. Batter will be thick.

Spread half (or just over half) of the batter into the bottom of the pan.

Cherry Cheesecake filling:
With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, egg, vanilla and sugar until smooth (it might be thin — that’s okay).

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter. Top with spoonfuls of cherry pie filling.

Drop spoonfuls of remaining brownie batter on top of the pie filling. You won’t be able to spread the brownie batter, you will just try to cover a good amount (but certainly all) of the filling with the batter. Smooth out the batter somewhat or try to swirl as desired, or just leave it alone!
Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes, until center appears set. Note that your brownies might still have a little jiggle to them — this is because of all of that gooey deliciousness below. 
Let cool to room temperature before cutting. They will cut more easily if refrigerated for a few hours.
