Amaretto & Cream Brownies

These cream cheese brownies are geared towards the mature crowd and packed with flavor. Serve warm with a scoop if your favorite vanilla ice cream and a hot mug of Irish coffee! They can also be made into single serve portions by creating "brownie cupcakes" in muffin tins.

Brownie Base:
  • 1 19-ounce package chewy fudge brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup Amaretto or other almond-flavored liqueur
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside. Combine brownie mix with eggs, oil and Amaretto and mix until well blended. Spread in the prepared baking dish.

Cream Cheese Swirl:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon Amaretto or other almond-flavored liqueur
Place cream cheese, softened butter, sugar, eggs, flour and Amaretto in a large bowl and beat by hand or with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour over brownie layer, swirl with the tip of a knife, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Set aside to cool, serve or store in the refrigerator.
