I love brownies, but had never tried a recipe that worked for me. See, I am very picky when it comes to brownies – favoring chewy, almost under baked brownies and detesting the cakey ones. The number of batches I have tested and proceeded to dump in the trash is countless, and I have to confess that no recipe I’ve encountered comes close to my favorite kind of brownie – the boxed mix kind (I know, I know…) – until now. Add some pumpkin cheesecake filling (inspired by this) to the top of this scrumptious brownie batter and you are left with the most soft, chewy, moist brownie you have ever come across (or at least that I have come across). And who doesn’t love cheesecake, chocolate, and pumpkin? During the Fall? This one’s a winner.
