This is sooo good! You will love it…everyone will love it! It’s an easy way to impress your family or guests. It travels well and is perfect for BBQ’s, picnics and potluck suppers…making extra, of course.
I was looking at Christy Jordan’s Southern Plate blog (don’t you just love her?!) and saw her Triple Chocolate Brownie Pie. I wanted it! I needed it! It looked so good! It reminded me of the Brownie Pecan Pie I make. I decided to make another brownie pie, this time in a pie crust. I used the American Neufchatel Cheese I made for the cheesecake part of this pie.
Cheesecake Swirled Brownie Pie
- 1 box dark chocolate brownie mix, homemade
- water, oil and eggs to make the mix
- 1 cup (8 oz.) neufchatel (cream) cheese
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg, optional…I didn’t use it
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 unbaked pie crust
Thaw, or take out,pie crust from the refrigerator. Mix brownie mix according to directions adding chocolate chips if desired. Line pie plate with crust. Pour 2/3 brownie batter. Mix neufchatel cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg if using. Dollop on top of batter. Top with remaining batter. Swirl with a knife…back and forth, turn 1/2 turn and run knife back and forth again.
Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven 30 to 40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean with the exception of melted chocolate.
