Instructions:

Brownie Layer:

  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Cream Cheese Swirl:

  2. Add granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Beat until creamy and well blended.

Assembly:

  1. Spread the brownie batter evenly in the prepared pan.
  2. Drop spoonfuls of the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter.
  3. Use a knife to swirl the cream cheese into the brownie batter, creating a marbled effect.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter).
  5. Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan before cutting them into squares.

Notes:

  • For an extra touch, try adding chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the brownie batter before baking.
  • Ensure the cream cheese is softened for a smooth and easy-to-swirl texture.

FAQs:

Q: Can I use salted butter instead of unsalted for the brownie layer? A: While you can use salted butter, using unsalted allows better control of the overall saltiness in the recipe. Adjust the salt accordingly if using salted butter.

Q: Can I freeze these brownies? A: Yes, these brownies freeze well. Ensure they are fully cooled, cut into squares, and wrap them tightly before freezing. Thaw in the refrigerator before serving.
