I am so excited to be an ambassador this year for Lucky Leaf pie filling!  I love working with companies that I love and that I am passionate about their product.  Lucky Leaf is a high quality and easy to use dessert product.  I love thinking of delicious recipes to create with their premium pie filling.  It really is the best!  It has no high fructose corn syrup and has more fruit inside and a lot of different flavors to chose from.   It is very convenient and versatile and a high quality product to use to simplify your baking.

 

Cherry pie filling is one of my all time favorite pie fillings.  And Lucky Leaf’s is bursting with big and delicious cherries inside.  You can truly see a difference in their pie filling.   So when choosing a dessert to make, I knew that I wanted to use it.  So then it came to me.  Why don’t I combine three of my favorite desserts in one!?  And that my friend, is how the Cherry Cheesecake Brownie was born!

This dessert turned out way better than expected.  I could hardly wait for them to cool and set.  My cherry loving 7 year old kept sneaking cherries from the top.  Apparently he couldn’t wait either!

But let me tell you.  These babies are worth the wait!

My favorite part of these brownies was the cheesecake and cherry swirled on top.  It looked so beautiful on top and it made these brownies look elegant and impressive.  The best part about these brownies is that they are simple to make!  They only take about 15 minutes to put together until they are baking in the oven.

As soon as the brownies were cooled and chilled I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into them!  The first bite seriously blew my mind.  I could taste the creamy cheesecake and delicious cherries in my mouth followed by a fudgy brownie.   These will go down in the history books as one of the best brownies that I have ever had!  I think as soon as you try them you will agree. 🙂

I am already thinking of new desserts to make while I am an ambassador this year and I can’t wait to share them with you. In the meantime, you will be able to connect with Lucky Leaf through Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.  You will be amazed at all of the delicious recipes you will find to make with their premium pie filling.

  1. These look fantastic! Congratulations on being ambassador! I’m sure it will be a blast 😉

  2. How fun to be an ambassador! I bet you get to try lots of different yummy pie filling!

  3. Is there another pie filling that you would suggest trying with this recipe? I am not the biggest fan of cherries, however these photos look amazing!

  4. I wouldn’t be able to wait to cut into these! All that gooey cherry filling! And congrats on your new ambassador opportunity!

  5. Could you use semi sweet chocolate

  6. granulated sugar or powdered for the cheesecake?

  7. I know these need to be chilled but how should they be stored?

  8. Hello These look amazing. do I need to keep them refrigerated. I wanted to set them out for about 4 hours in a container. and also can they be frozen ahead

  9. Can you use a regular brownie mix?

  10. Was curious if you could use a brownie mix to make the base of this?

  11. Made these for a birthday celebration at work and they were a hit!! Got asked for the recipe multiple times.

  12. For the cheesecake portion, is that 2 8oz things of cream cheese, or 2 packages to TOTAL 8 oz of cream cheese?

    • 2 (8 oz) packages total. 🙂

      • It is the second time I get confused about this way of writing the amount of cream cheese required. And I still do not understand why everyone would write ”2 (8 oz) packages” instead of ”16 oz of cream cheese”. I thought I needed 8 oz in total and used that… 🙁

  13. Hi. I made these but they didn’t turn out as pretty as yours. Do you just put drops of the topping? I put the cheesecake over the entire brownies and then the cherries on top so I didn’t get the marble look. Is that where I went wrong?

    • Yes. I just dropped the topping on the cheesecake and then swirled. I hope that they were still just as yummy. 🙂

  14. Does this call for all purpose flour or self rising?? 🙂

  15. Can it be frozen?

  16. I have been baking for twentysome years and this is the best thing I’ve ever made!! They don’t sell pie filling here in Finland so I made some myself. Thank you for this recipe! <3

  17. I made these yesterday for Valentine’s Day and everyone loved them! (I did have to use a different brand of pie filling since Lucky Leaf is not available here.) I cut them when they were chilled, but they tasted better closer to room temperature. Next time I will pull them from the oven a few minutes earlier. They were fudgy and creamy and just so yummy!! Thanks for the recipe!

  18. I made these yesterday for dessert for a group of friends between the ages of 65 and 85 and they all loved them. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!!!
