Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

‘Tis the pumpkin season—and in between the spiced lattes and creamy pumpkin soups, these Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies cannot be missed.

Thick, fudgy brownies with a cream cheese and pumpkin layer swirled with chocolate brownie batter are what dreams are made of.

And the swirled design is easier than it looks…

I poured the brownie batter into the bottom layer, reserving some in a piping bag. I then used an offset spatula to spread the pumpkin cheesecake into an even layer. I then piped horizontal lines with the reserved brownie batter. I used a knife to make vertical lines intersecting the horizontal lines to form this horseshoe pattern (seen below). Next, I made more vertical lines in the center of the horseshoe pattern to form the chevron pattern.
