~ Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake ~
Brownie Bars


~Bottom~
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1 egg
1--21.2 oz pkg brownie mix

~Cheesecake Layer~
3--8 oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
3 eggs at room temperature
3/4 cup pureed strawberries, fresh or frozen,*
*sweetened with 1 T sugar

~Topping~
1--3 oz pkg strawberry-flavored gelatin
1/2 cup boiling water
1/4 cup strawberries, cut into 1/2 inch chunks

Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick foil. Cream butter and cream cheese
together; add egg and mix until smooth. Combine creamed mixture with
dry brownie mix, stirring by hand. Mixture will be thick. Spread evenly
in foil lined pan and bake for 15 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
Cheesecake Layer: Beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and vanilla with
electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low
speed after each addition just until blended. Reserve 1-1/2 cups of the
plain batter. Stir strawberry puree into remaining batter. Spoon
strawberry batter over bottom; top with evenly-spaced spoonfuls of
plain batter. Swirl a butter knife through topping for marble effect,
taking care not to dislodge the bottom brownie layer. Bake for 40 - 45
minutes or until center is set and edges lightly browned. Cool to room
temperature, then refrigerate while preparing topping. Topping: Combine
boiling water and both boxes of gelatin. Stir until no more sugar or
gelatin granules are visible and liquid is clear. Cool to room
temperature. Add strawberry chunks and mix well. Pour cooled
strawberry gelatin mixture over top of cooled cheesecake and spread
evenly. Refrigerate for at least two hours. Cut into bars before
serving. Refrigerate leftovers.
Makes 24 servings
