Strawberries & Cream Blondies
Also seen on Paint Chips & Frosting
Ingredients1 pound strawberries ( sliced )
4 tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
DirectionsPrepare the Strawberry Jam:
Puree half of the strawberries using a blender or food processor. Add pureed strawberries and remaining sliced strawberries to a large frying pan. Add 2 Tbsp sugar and lemon juice. If you choose not to puree the strawberries, you should add a couple Tbsp water.
Heat on medium heat, and let simmer for about 15 minutes, until it reaches your desired thickness. You can add the remaining sugar if desired, some berries are sweeter than others, so adjust according to your taste.
Let cool completely.
Prepare the Cheesecake Layer:
Beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla until combined. Set aside.
Prepare Strawberry Blondies:
Combine cake mix, eggs, and oil in a medium bowl and mix until just combined. Add 1/4 cup of strawberry jam and continue to mix. Add up to 3 tbsp of heavy cream/milk if needed to make the mixture less thick (so it will be spreadable).
Spread batter into a greased 9x9-inch pan.
Spread the cream cheese mixture over top of batter, and spoon the the strawberry jam on top of it. Run a knife through the cream cheese and jam to create a swirl pattern. Try to avoid getting the knife in the blondie batter.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center come out clean
