Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Brownies

I just noticed that I have been posting a lot of Pumpkin recipes lately! (Hope you don't mind)! I wanted to make these pumpkin spice cheesecake brownies as soon as I saw them on Jen's blog. Now you might be thinking that chocolate + cheesecake + pumpkin doesn't sound all that appealing... but when you bite into one of these little brownies, I promise that you'll instantly fall in love!

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Brownies
Yield: 16 bars

Brownie Batter:
3/4 C. Butter, melted
1 C. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
1/2 C. All Purpose Flour
1/2 C. Cocoa Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Cinnamon

Cheesecake Batter:
8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened (I used reduced fat)
1 Egg
1/2 C. Sugar
2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. Flour
2/3 C. Pumpkin Puree
1/3 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
2/3 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/3 tsp. Ground Ginger
1/3 tsp. Ground Cloves

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Grease an 8x8'' square metal baking pan. Beat together the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla; then beat in eggs one at a time. Combine the dry ingredients and then stir into the butter mixture with a wooden spoon. In a separate bowl, beat together the cheesecake batter ingredients. Spread about 2/3 of the chocolate batter into a prepared pan, and spoon cheesecake batter over. Dollop remaining brownie batter over cheesecake batter. Swirl the batters together by running a butter knife back and forth through the pan. Bake for 40 minutes (or until center is set). Cool completely on a wire rack and chill before cutting and serving.
