Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies Thursday, January 25, 2018


3 eggs
6 TBSP butter
1 cup sugar, divided
3 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese


Separate two eggs, putting each white in a separate bowl (discard yolks or save for another use); set aside. In a small mixing bowl, beat butter and 3/4 cup sugar until crumbly. Add the whole egg, one egg white and vanilla and mix well. Combine flour and cocoa; add to egg mixture and beat until blended. Pour into a 9-in. square baking pan coated with cooking spray; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Beat in the second egg white. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls over the batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until set and edges pull away from sides of pan. Cool on a wire rack.
