You may have already drooled over this bars I made during my Wilton UltraGold review. I received so many comments and requests for it that I’ve decided to make this recipe its own post. It is certainly worthy of it! This brownie topped with a cream cheese filling and cherry topping is absolutely scrumptious!
1 box fudge brownie mix (1 lb 2.3 oz size)
2/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
2 pkgs (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1 container (1 lb) vanilla ready-to spread frosting
1 t. almond extract
1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling, chilled
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 13×9 inch baking pan with shortening.
In large bowl combine brownie ingredients and stir until well blended. Pour into pan.
Bake 24 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted two inches from the edge comes out almost clean. Cool completely. (Approx. 30 minutes)
Beat filling ingredients in large bowl until smooth and spread over cooled brownies. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or until set.
Spoon chilled cherry filling over top and cut into squares.
