Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirled Brownies

Makes an 8x8 pan

INGREDIENTS

For the Swirl: 

4 oz. cream cheese, softened


1/2 cup canned pumpkin


1 egg


3 tbsp. sugar


1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

 

    Brownies:

    1/2 cup butter


    4 oz. unsweetened chocolate


    1 cup sugar


    2 eggs


    1 tbsp. vanilla


    2/3 cup flour

      INSTRUCTIONS

      1. Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides. 

      2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the pumpkin and beat until combined, scraping the bowl as you go. Add the egg, sugar and pumpkin pie spice and beat until combined. If you want a stronger pumpkin spice flavor, you can definitely add more seasoning, the swirl will just not have as vibrant of an orange color. 

      3. In a large bowl, microwave the butter until melted. Add the chocolate and whisk until melted and smooth. If necessary, microwave the chocolate and butter in 10 second intervals until the chocolate is completely melted. Whisk in the sugar, vanilla and eggs, one at time, whisking well after each addition. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated. 

      4. Pour 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Drop spoonfuls the pumpkin cheesecake batter across the brownie batter. Top with spoonfuls of the remaining brownies batter. Use a knife to swirl the brownie and cheesecake batter together. Be careful not to over-swirl or the cheesecake will disappear. 

      5. Bake 35-40 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before removing from pan and slicing.
