Well, I thought I was done with pumpkin for the season, but not quite. The idea of pumpkin cheesecake swirled brownies has been floating around in my mind for a couple of months, basically as soon as pumpkin season started! But it took me a while to actually get around to working on them. And then it took a few tries to get it right.
But these brownies are amazing. If you like pumpkin that is. My husband was really not a fan, but then he doesn’t like pumpkin in anything. I really don’t know what’s wrong with him. Pumpkin is amazing. He says it tastes like a candle. I’m baffled by that.
Pumpkin combined with both cheesecake AND brownies. Yum. It doesn’t get much better than that. These are chocolatey, fudgy brownies, with spiced pumpkin cheesecake swirls throughout. I’ve eaten far too many of them (I had to give some away actually due to the aforementioned pumpkin hater here! Even I can’t eat 2 batches of rich cheesecake brownies!)
If you’re a pumpkin fan, you need to try these. They are the perfect decadent pumpkin treat to end pumpkin season. You know, if pumpkin has a season in your house. I use it all year, but I’ll try to avoid bombarding all of you with it until next fall! On to the Christmas season and far too much baking!
