PHILADELPHIA Light Brick Cream Cheese Spread, softened
LIGHT VERSION! I wasn't looking for it, since I would substitute the oil for applesauce, eggs for egg whites, and cream cheese for light cream cheese... but awesome! They're amazing. Made them for my girlfriend's birthday and she's trying to lose weight so I didn't want to sabotage her completely. Definitely give this a try... I did add a TSP of vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture (we love vanilla around here) and I don't think it would be as good had I not added that, probably a bit bland? My husband wants me to try doing an espresso brownie next time (with granulated coffee, add to water) so maybe I will!
I was not impressed with this. The cream cheese part was very difficult to spread, it clumped more than anything and the brownie part came out with a VERY wierd, chewy, rather disgusting texture. I've never baked with applesauce before so I'm not sure if that's why but I have never had anything turn out like that before. I won't use this recipe again.
I loved these! I added a 1/2 block more of the cream cheese, it was more flavorful...wonderful!
These were okay, but the brownie batter was a little runny & the cream cheese part was a little cakey. My kids loved them, but I'd prefer using a different recipe.
Not sure what went wrong with other reviewers but I made this recipe exactly to the recipes specs and it turned out brilliantly. There was definitely enough cheesecake filling to cover the top of the 8x13 pan I used and it turned out exactly like the photo provided. This was very well received by my Hubby and kids and it will definitely be used again. So tasty - so velvety. The one thing I could say to reviewers is maybe it was worth a 30 second shot in the Microwave with your cheese if it was clumpy??? Seriously tasty!
I made this for my friend's bday and it was a big hit! Everyone loved it! I even made it a little healthier by using 1/3 fat free cream cheese! Excellent recipe! thanks!
Very disappointed with this recipe. Brownie batter was disproportionate to the cheesecake layer, and as such, was very thin. The cheesecake layer was also impossible to spread in a complete layer (despite softening), and came out clumpy. Overall, the finished product was spongy, and chewy; not at all the dense, chocolate-y goodness that you expect from a brownie. Would not recommend this recipe, and I will not be making it again.
I am not going to lie, I am far from a culinary genius however, I find it difficult to believe that I screwed up this recipe so bad that my brownies bounced off the floor. The texture was rubbery and chewy. I would not make these again!!
