Zebra Brownies

I made brownies like this for a co-workers' last day (though didn't have the presence of mind to take my own pictures so I borrowed this one. Trust me. They look like this). Everybody has liked them so far, though they gave me quite a hard time wanting to stick to the bottom of the pan. I used a smaller pan and doubled the cooking time.

I left them out to cool overnight and when I woke up, Steve had eaten two.I haven't tried them yet but I can see myself heading in that direction.

ZEBRA BROWNIES (recipe courtesy of cooks.com)

FILLING:
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg

BROWNIES:
2 c. sugar
2 sticks butter, softened
1 1/4 c. flour
3 eggs
6 tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine all brownie ingredients and mix well (about 1 minute on high speed). Set aside.

In small bowl blend all filling ingredients at medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute.

Grease bottom only of 13 x 9 inch pan. Spread 1/2 of brownie batter in pan. (this is easier said than done-batter is extremely sticky). Pour cream cheese mixture over batter, spreading to cover. Place spoonfuls of remaining batter on top of cream cheese. Marble by pulling knife through batter in wide curves, then turn pan and repeat.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool. Then refrigerate at least 2 hours before cutting (I do it overnight). Cover tightly and store in refrigerator.
