This is really nice. The cheesecake layer baked perfectly, no cracks. But I only baked for 45 minutes and let the cake sit in the oven for 15 minutes more.
Oh man...this is delicious! This is one of those recipes that people have already asked me to make again. It was sooo good. I baked the brownie layer for about 5-10 minutes less than the recipe called for and I also baked the cheesecake layer for less time as well. I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese (neufchatel...sp?) and it was still super rich. Will definitely make this again!
I've seen this recipe before, except instead of making the brownies from scratch it called for using a mix. It turns out so good, and is much less time consuming! You just have to bake the brownie layer for the time of a 9x9 pan on the box. I always decorate it with a ring of sliced kiwi around the edge and cherry pie filling in the middle. Perfect for Christmas.
