CREAM CHEESE BROWNIES

This recipe came from the wrapper of Baker’s German Sweet Chocolate.  They are a great holiday treat.

CREAM CHEESE BROWNIES

1 package (4 oz) German Sweet Chocolate (I often substitute milk chocolate)

5 tablesppons butter

3 oz cream cheese

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 tablespoon flour

1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsifted all purpose flour

1/2 cup chopped nuts

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Melt chocolate with 3 tablespoons butter over low heat, stirring constantly.  Cool.  Cream remaining butter with cheese.  Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar; cream well after each addition.  Blend in 1 egg, 1 tablespoon flour, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Set aside.

Beat 2 eggs until thick and light in color.  Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating until thickened.  Add baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup flour.  Blend in chocolate mixture, nuts, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and almond extract.  Spread about half in a greased 8 or 9 inch square pan.  Spread cheese mixture over top; spoon on remaining chocolate batter.  Zigzag through batters with spactula to marble.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes.  Cool, then cut.  Makes 16 to 20 squares.

Enjoy!
