The Prize Winner
As requested, here is my prize winning Red Raspberry Cheesecake Squares recipe! I hope you all love it! It is really really yummy!!
Red Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake Squares
1 box fudge brownie mix plus ingredients to make
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
¼ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup seedless red raspberry jam
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 in baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray and set aside. Prepare brownies as package states, pour into baking pan and bake for 15 minutes. While brownie layer bakes, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar, flour and vanilla, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. When brownie comes out of oven, spoon cheesecake mixture over brownies, spread as evenly as possible. Dot with jam and swirl with knife. Top with chocolate chips and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheesecake looks set but still a little wiggly. Cool for 10 minutes, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When ready to serve, remove from pan using aluminum foil, peel away and place brownie on cutting board. Cut into 24 squares, making sure to wipe knife between each cut. Place on serving tray and enjoy! Make sure to refrigerate any leftovers!
