  • In a large bowl, cream together shortening, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup white sugar. Beat in the 3 eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; blend into the sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, and set aside.

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese and 1/4 cup white sugar. Mix in the 2 remaining 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. Don't worry if there are gaps; the batter will spread.

  • Bake for 45 minutes in preheated oven, or until lightly browned on the top. Let the brownies cool in the pan before cutting into bars.

I made a half recipe and baked them in an 8x8 pan for 35 minutes. They came out perfect. They were really easy to prepare and looked great after I sliced them up. Now the problem NO flavor and not sweet enough. I don't know how a brownie and cheesecake could be this tasteless! Read More

I read all the previous reviews and this recipe seems to be walking a very thin line as far as how long to bake. Some have to bake for more than an hour and others are less than 45 minutes. In my oven these were done on top in about 35-40 minutes but were not done in the middle in just one or two very small areas. Next time I will turn my oven down just a tad and keep a close eye on them. For those of you who need to bake more than an hour personally I think these are worth the wait. Me and my husband fell in love with these. The mix of choc chip cookie and cheesecake is PERFECT. Although not kind to the waistline these will definately fix any sweet tooth cravings. These should be called "Death by Chocolate and Cheesecake"!! Read More

Ohhhhhhh sooooo good! I realized that we didn't have any pecans at the last moment and wasn't willing to drive anywhere to get them so they were omitted. I'll add them next time because we all thought these were excellent! I'm not a brownie fan because I associate brownies with too much chocolate but these were perfect amt! Will satisfy any sweet tooth (my boyfriend) but not too sweet for anti's like myself. Thanks Barb! Read More

These brownies were extremely rich and delicious. I also had to bake them for about an 1 1/4 hours it took ages for the bottom layer to cook. I covered the pan with foil when it started to brown too much and tested it with a knife until it was done. Read More

These were very good. I made these for a family get together and they were gone in no time. I found that using a mellon ball scooper made putting the top layer on a lot easier. Read More

These were soooo delicious. I followed recipe exactly. Not sure why other reviewers are having uncooked areas of their dish mine was actually overcooked by about 5 minutes. There was a slight "burn" taste on the bottom. Next time I will bake this at 325 degrees. My boyfriend and his sons at this whole pan in 2 days! Sheesh! I loved the cheesecake layer and am thinking this would be a great filling for cupcakes etc. It is divine. Thank you for the great recipe. This one is a keeper. Read More
