Raspberry Chocolate Cream Cheese Blondies

Cookie:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp soda
2 1/4 cups flour
4.4 oz Lindt bar white, milk or dark chocolate, in pieces

Cream cheese filling:
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup raspberry preserves, freezer jam if possible

Heat oven to 350 degrees

With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars together for 3 minutes. Add eggs, salt, and vanilla. Beat until light. Add soda and flour, and on a low speed, stir until just mixed. Take out about 1/4 of the batter and set aside. Stir in chocolate pieces and spread into 9×13 inch pan.

In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese and sugar. Add vanilla and mix until smooth. Spread evenly over the top of the dough.

Drop teaspoons of preserves evenly over the top of the cream cheese mixture.

Take remaining dough and heat in the microwave for about 20 seconds to slightly soften. Drop warm dough evenly over preserves and cream cheese.

Place in oven and bake for 3 minutes. With a knife, going in a pattern, lightly swirl layers together to make a marbling affect. Cook an additional 17-19 minutes or until golden brown and the center is set. Cool and cut into bars.

Makes 18-24 bars

  1. I enjoy your recipes and love your presentation. I made this tonight for my husband’s birthday. It was good, but too sweet for my taste. I think I would you a lot less sugar next time. Maybe 1/2 c instead of 1 c.
