Boxed Brownies in a pinch
1 Box Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg white
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup red raspberry jam
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13x9" glass pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl empty the brownie mix and add the water, oil, melted butter and eggs. The recipe on the back of the box will call for 2/3 cup oil, but I cut that amount in half and used butter instead. Mix all of these ingredients together until well blended and you can no longer see any dry mix in the bowl.
3. Put the cream cheese in a separate mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer, blend the cream cheese until creamy and then add the egg white, blend again. Next, add the vanilla and sugar. Mix with the hand mixer one last time until all of the ingredients are well blended, creamy and no longer lumpy.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean!
