That just about sums up this incredible dessert. Wow. Maybe even WOW.
I had seen these brownies on the Just a Taste blog, and as usual for this site the pictures made my mouth water. Ever since then I was looking for an occasion to make them, and with my daughter home from NYC for a few days I had my occasion.
For something that looks – and tastes – amazing these were pretty easy to make. I don’t think I had ever made brownies from scratch before, always resorting to a box of Duncan Hines when I had a brownie urge. Now that I know how simple brownies are to make – just flour, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, cocoa power and white vinegar – I may eschew the box forever. Of course these were no ordinary brownies either. The red food coloring adding a festive touch, which the author had added since this was a Valentine’s Day dessert on her site. More importantly the cheesecake layer of softened cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and an egg yolk added both a wonderful flavor AND a fantastic look.
Humm…wonder what occasion can I now come up with to make these again.
