Red Velvet Cheesecake Blondies

Teresa

Oh my goodness. Red Velvet Cheesecake Blondies. Talk about mouthwatering. Talk about decadent. Talk about irresistible. Talk about amazing. Talk about eating the whole pan! 🙂 I loved, loved, loved these fantastic brownies. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this recipe. It’s so cheesecakey (is that a word?) It makes a fantastic dessert for holidays like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, birthdays or just because you enjoy Red Velvet desserts. Do I hear an Amen?

Follow Me On Instagram!

About a week or so before Valentine’s Day we got a copy of our monthly city style magazine. I like to look through those magazines for great places to eat and recipes! The recipe Red Velvet Cheesecake Blondies was in that magazine. They got it from a local bakery.

I read through the recipe a couple of times. I realized immediately that it wasn’t typed in correctly, Some of the measurements for vanilla and flour (with divided usage) weren’t adding up to the total amounts used. I corrected all of that. I will tell you I was leery of using nutmeg in the crust layer. But I decided to give it a go nonetheless.

I was not in the least disappointed. The nutmeg did not overwhelm the taste. The cheesecake itself was excellent. It doesn’t use a lot of cocoa, but it was still an excellent Red Velvet dessert. We gave out the brownies to several of our neighbors on Valentine’s Day just to say high and wish them the best.

I wasn’t the only one in our neighborhood who tried out the recipe. We heard from a few others that also gave it a whirl. Everybody enjoyed it but one of the gals said she would have preferred a graham cracker crust rather than the one given. I actually disagree. I thought this crust was better than a graham cracker crust. Because this recipe has a lot of steps and is more involved than some dessert recipes, I recommend you look at all the pictures and read through the recipe instructions thoroughly before making this lovely Red Velvet dessert.

Even though this dessert does call for a little more work, this is one delightful brownie recipe you don’t want to be without. Enjoy.

Soften butter. The recipe never specified if the butter was to be softened, melted or left cold. But since it was for a crust layer, I didn’t worry about it too much. Mine is kind of half way between softened and melted. Add brown sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes until the edges of the top layer are set, but the center of the bars are still a little “wobbly” and not firm. Allow the cheesecake bars to cool for at least four hours or overnight.

After four hours, I recommend refrigerating the bars overnight before cutting and serving. As the bars cool, the middle will sink into the cheesecake somewhat and will get firmer as the dessert cools.

Notes

NOTE TO ME: Frisco Style magazine did not record ingredients carefully enough because the flour measurements did not add up to the amounts used in the recipe. I corrected this in instructions and total amounts.
NOTE: The recipe never said if the butter was supposed to be cold or softened. I softened the butter and only mixed about 3 minutes instead of five.
NOTE: As the blondies cool, the cheesecake layer will sink somewhat. This is normal.
NOTE: After cooling the blondies about four hours at room temperature, I recommend refrigerating the blondies overnight before cutting into bars.
