Cookies and Cream Brownies
These brownies combine cream cheese, brownies, and are topped with Oreos.
Cream Cheese Layer
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
- 4 ounces melted butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 12 cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies -- crushed
In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth; set aside. For brownie layer, combine butter, sugars and cocoa in a large mixing bowl; blend well.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour and baking powder; stir into the cocoa mixture. Stir in vanilla and cookie crumbs. Pour into a greased 11x7x2-inch baking pan.
Spoon cream cheese mixture over batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool completely.
