Tequila Lime Brownies (adapted from Nick Malgieri’s Supernatural Brownies) - Ingredients
For the brownie layer
6 ounces semi sweet chocolate (Ghirardelli 62% cocoa)
8 ounces butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Juice of ½ lime
1 cup flour
For the tequila-lime cream cheese layer
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
Juice of 1 ½ limes
Zest of 2 limes
¼ cup tequila
Prepare the tequila-lime layer by beating cream cheese, sugar, and egg until smooth. Add the lime zest, lime juice, vanilla, and tequila and mix until uniform. Set aside.
Melt the butter and chocolate together over low heat until just melted, set aside and allow to cool. Beat four eggs until fluffy, then add sugar and brown sugar, beat until fluffy again. Add salt, vanilla, lime juice and chocolate-butter mixture, blend until uniform. Fold in flour, then pour batter into a buttered 9”x13” pan. Spread tequila lime mixture on top, cut through the batter with a knife to swirl.
Bake at 350° F for 45-55 minutes, or until brownies are firm when the pan is shaken.
Allow to cool before cutting. Or let everybody in the house do this to the pan.Hope that there are at least a few left for a picture.
