Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

I came up with this recipe the other evening as something to take along to an ice cream social.  I made it sugar free using a SF brownie mix and using a stevia sweetener in the pumpkin cheesecake part.  Feel free to use regular brownies and sugar. 

 I also have more pumpkin to brownie ratio.  You could use the same amount of pumpkin cheesecake and use a 9x13" size box of brownie mix if you want.  If you want a more genuine pumpkin pie taste you could add the typical pumpkin pie spices to the cheesecake part.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

4 ounces cream cheese, softened (light can be used)
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 egg
1 Tablespoon sugar or 3/4 teaspoon Truvia (made from stevia)

1 8x8" size brownie mix and the ingredients to make the brownies (oil, egg, water etc)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom only of 8x8" or 9x9" glass baking dish with cooking spray. In small bowl, beat all filling ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Set aside.
Make brownie batter as directed on box.
Spread 3/4 of the batter in baking dish.
 Pour pumpkin mixture over the top.
Spoon remaining brownie batter over filling.
 Cut through batter several times with knife for marbled design.
For an 8x8" pan bake for 28 to 32 minutes or until a tooth inserted near the middle comes out clean.   9x9" pans, 26 to 30 minutes.
Allow to cool for at least 10-15 minutes before you attempt to cut it.  It is really best if you wait until completely cool.

Homemade Salsa

Everyone has their own tastes and interpretations when it comes to salsa.  I was given a salsa recipe from a friend.   It contained quite a bit of sugar.  We don't use much sugar so I went on with the task of lowering the sugar. It also contained a thickener that dulled the color of our salsa.  I removed it so our salsa is more like fresh salsa, but canned. 

Taste your salsa before you can it.  If you wouldn't eat it fresh, you won't like it canned. 

Homemade Salsa

20 cups chopped peeled and seeded tomatoes*
1 to 1-1/2 cups minced onions (onions can be strong so ease in slow)
1-1/2 cups minced green peppers
7 banana peppers, minced
5-6 jalapenos (if they are hot, use less --if you can't tell start off with fewer, you can always add more), minced
2 Tablespoons sugar
2-1/2 Tablespoons chili powder
5-6 dashes of red cayenne pepper
1-1/2 cups vinegar
2 Tablespoons salt
