TwD: Expresso Cheesecake Brownies

This week's pick by Melissa of Life in a Peanut Shell is....Expresso Cheesecake Brownies! Sound overloaded and completely rich??? It is...and then some. I have to say that this sort of brownie is right up my mom's alley. She downs at least one French press of coffee a day and has always had a weakness for cheesecake that leaves me with a stomach ache. I can eat copious amounts of almost any confection...cheesecake being on the limited edition list. So while I enjoyed these, I leave the real yay or nay to my mom, who enjoyed them muchly. We both agreed with other TWD bakers in thinking the brownie a little dry. However, the second day the brownie wasn't as dry, and was a nice, solid base for the cheesecake. Quite a structural piece. I love the marbled top. It seems so promising. I cut one row of brownies while the brownies were still warm, and the cheesecake cut much better - after cooling, they stuck to the knife and I ended up eating an entire brownie top while "cleaning the knife."

The marbling is perfect - and clearly, I missed that part of the directions!!

These cheesecake brownies did provide a few opportunities for licking the knife, what with all the wet crumbs left behind. Not a bad thing! :-)

Hi, your brownies look really good...great job swirling. I learned a trick for cutting cheesecake clean...wet the knife with hot water and dry between each cut, and cut straight down and pull the knife straight out!! Anyway you slice it...yummy!
Peace, Stephanie
