Federico has been in finals this week, so I made him some of his favorite cream cheese marbled brownies. Brad isn't used to sharing desserts, so he got ONE taste, and Federico declared them "MY brownies"! They were gone in 3 days!
Use your favorite brownie recipe, or a brownie mix and bake HALF the batter for 10 minutes at 375 in a sprayed 7x11 pan.
Cream cheese filling: 8 oz softened cream cheese, 1/3 c. sugar, 1 egg, 1 t. vanilla. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and beat until combined. Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. Pour over partially baked brownies. Top with spoonfuls of remaining brownie batter, then swirl with a knife, carefully avoiding bottom brownie layer. Continue baking for 30 minutes.
