Just make sure that you set the brownies out 10-15 minutes before you plan to serve them so that they’re easier to cut.

    Can you serve these not frozen? Will the consistency be ok?

      I haven’t tried to thaw them, so I’m not sure how they would work out.

    I’m hoping that where it says beat egg and 2 T flour into cream cheese mixture, it means 1 egg. And where it says beat remaining sugar and eggs, it means 3 eggs.

      Yes, you’ll mix 1 egg into the cream cheese mixture, and the remaining 3 eggs will be used in the brownie batter. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

        ingredient list calls for 1 1/2 cup sugar. when making cream cheese it says use 1/3 cup, then later ” beat remaining sugar” so do i really subtract 1/3 from 1 1/2 to get the amount of the “remaining”?

          Yes, that’s correct. You’ll use 1/3 cup out of the 1 1/2 cups in the cream cheese mixture, and the rest will be the remaining sugar.
