Oreo Cheesecake Brownies
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
8 oz soft cream cheese
3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped Oreos
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 8×8 pan with nonstick foil.
In a small saucepan over melt butter. Whisk in sugar and bring to a boil, stirring often: boil 1 minute. Set aside and cool a few mins. .
In a mixer, beat the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract. Set aside as this is your middle layer.
In another bowl, whisk eggs and stir in the melted butter mixture to combine. Add dry ingredients and then Oreos. (sift in the cocoa to avoid clumps)
Spread half of the brownie mixture into the pan. Top with the cream cheese layer. Distribute the rest of the brownie mix on top and spread with an offset spatula.
Bake for 26-30 minutes, until set. Chill before cutting.
