Cherry Cheesecake Brownie Bars start with a box brownie mix (or make your own) a layer of cheesecake filling and fresh sweet cherries.
  • 1 box brownie mix for a 9 x 13 pan made according to package directions
  • Cheesecake Filling
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • dash salt
  • 1 egg
  • Cherries
  • 1 lb. sweet cherries, pitted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish. (I used a glass pan. In a metal pan you can bake at 350 but the baking time will be shorter)
  2. Mix brownies according to package directions. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Add the cheesecake filling ingredients to a mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. Drop by large tablespoons evenly over batter. Swirl with a knife slightly.
  4. Top with the pitted cherries that have the sugar added to them. (you can omit the sugar if desired) Mine took almost a hour to bake, I started checking at 45 minutes. When a cake tester can pull out clean and it is puffed up in the center they are done. Cool well before cutting.
  5. Refrigerate.
