Cheesecake Brownies for the Birthday Girl

Yesterday was my oldest daughter's birthday. She turned 9 years old and I know I've said this before but, man time sure flies! Since her birthday was in the middle of the week this year we decided to have a party with her friends this coming Saturday. I'll make cake then, most probably cupcakes, so I didn't want to make cake twice in the same week. But, I still wanted her to have a special birthday dessert.

I asked her what she would like and all she said was "Something chocolate!". That's my girl! Brownies came to mind, being an easy dessert and all, and when I searched my favorite sites these Cheesecake Brownies on David Lebovitz' blog caught my eye. Still an easy recipe but with a little something extra that really says "Birthday!".


These are deliciously chocolaty but not too sweet, just perfect for a small birthday dinner, or to perk up any ordinary weekday meal. The birthday girl was quite happy with her special dessert and so was everyone else who had a square, or two! Please visit David's blog for the recipe!

Happy birthday to her!
She's so pretty and has such a sweet look - these brownies are certainly a great way to celebrate her birthday.

it took me awhile to fully appreciate the tanginess of cream cheese in brownies, so kudos to your gal for liking it at such a young age. happy birthday wishes to her!

Happy happy birthday! Sorry I have been soooooo out of touch! I'm trying to get a bit caught up on my reading and just had to say hi! The brownies look great! I hope the party today was awesome - I'm sure the birthday girl didn't mind having two celebrations!
