These are like "Shut the Front Door" type of brownies.
Brownies, cream cheese and cherries?! shut the front door!! :)This recipe I came across in a magazine and ripped out the page knowing one day I would have to make them. Well, the paper got shoved away into my hundreds of pages of recipes I rip out and I finally found it. Then yep, I had to make them right away.
The recipe is from Lucky Leaf (the pie filling makers) and they know how to use their pie filling, that's for sure.
Since I love cherries, my daughter loves chocolate and the hubs loves cheesecake it is a total win at my house!
I should have waited a little bit longer to cut into them, hence the dropping cream cheese in the picture, but seriously, they taste so good. Very rich. Very delicious. Very wonderful!
