Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies


36 brownies


1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup pecans, chopped


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan using Pan Release or cooking spray.

In a large bowl, cream together shortening, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Beat in the 3 eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Blend dry ingredients into the sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese and 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Mix remaining 2 eggs.

Spread 1/2 of chocolate chip dough in bottom of the prepared pan. Pour cream cheese batter on top of dough. Sprinkle with pecans. Drop pieces of the remaining chocolate chip batter over filling (the batter will spread during baking to cover gaps).

Bake for 45 minutes, or until lightly browned on the top. Cool pan on wire rack before cutting.
