valentine treats

i'm stuck in bed with an ouchy back, so i thought i'd try to catch up on some posting. here are the raspberry cheesecake brownies that i made for valentine's day. i used a big heart shaped cookie cutter and made hearts. topped them with some raspberry flavored whipped cream. not exactly a healthy recipe, but yummy. i plan to make this this week to take to my meeting.

raspberry cheesecake brownies
  • 1 family size brownie mix (and the eggs and such that it calls for)
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3-2/3 cup sugar (i dont remember what i used..)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
  1. prepare brownies as directed on the box and pour into a 9x13 pan
  2. mix together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg. space glops of cheesecake batter evenly throughout pan of uncooked brownies. i think i had 9 or 12 large glops.
  3. add glops of raspberry jam to glops of cheesecake.
  4. make swirly and pretty with a knife. i did side to side in one direction and then side to side from another direction
  5. bake at 350 degrees for somewhere around 30-40 minutes until the cheesecake is looking a little golden and done.

sounds like the perfect thing to take somewhere to keep from eating the entire pan.
