  • 10.25 ounces brownie mix package
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 ounces canned pumpkin


  1. Mix all the brownie ingredients together until combined and spread in a 7 x 11 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

  2. To a medium bowl, cream the cream cheese. Slowly whisk in the egg a little at a time to smooth out the lumps. Whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla.

  3. Pour half of this mixture into a small bowl. To this bowl, whisk in the pumpkin until smooth.

  4. Dollop the cream cheese mixture and the pumpkin mixture on top of the brownie batter in the pan. Using a butter knife, run the knife through the dollops to make swirls.

  5. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the center is set and no longer jiggles. The brownies should start to brown around the edges.
