Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies
This recipe was out of a community cookbook I got from and old friend’s mom.
A favourite of office birthdays.
Chocolate Chip Batter
1 (250 ml) cup shortening
1 (250 ml) cup brown sugar, packed
½ (125 ml) cup granulated sugar
1 (5 ml) teaspoon vanilla
2 (500 ml) cups all-purpose flour
1 (5 ml) teaspoon baking soda
1 (5 ml) teaspoon salt
1 ½ (375 ml) cups chocolate chips
Cream Cheese Batter
2 (each 8oz/250g) packages cream cheese, softened
1/4 (50 ml) cup granulated sugar
1 (250 ml) cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven 50 350F.
Cream shortening. Add sugars and vanilla.. Add eggs and beat well.
Sift dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
Spread ½ of the batter into the bottom of a greased 9" x 13" pan.
Make cream batter by combining cream cheese, sugar, eggs and pecans.
Pour onto chocolate chip batter base. Spoon remaining chocolate chip batter
on top of cream cheese layer. Bake about 45 minutes. Cool and cut.
I will sprinkle extra chocolate chips and chopped pecans on top before
it goes in the oven.
