Brownie Bits Cheesecake!

My mom made this amazing cheesecake for our family party on Saturday, and I have to say it one of the best cheesecakes I've ever had! I wish I had a picture to include, but it was gobbled up too quickly!

From Wilton Brownie Fun

2 packages 8x8 size brownie mix
Eggs, water and oil to prepare mixes

3 packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
6 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 inch springform pan and 8 inch square pan with vegetable spray.
  2. In a large bowl, prepare one brownie mix following package instructions. Spread into bottom of prepared square pan. Prepare remaining brownie mix following package instructions. Spread into prepared springform pan.
  3. Bake both pans together for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. Turn oven down to 325.
  4. Cut approximately half of the brownies from the square pan into 3/4 inch pieces; set aside.
  5. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Beat in sour cream and eggs. Add vanilla and almond extracts. Gently stir in 1/2 cup of the cut brownies. Pour over cooled crust.
  6. Sprinkle remaining cut brownies over cheesecake batter; lightly press into batter.
  7. Place cheesecake in middle of oven. Fill a large pan with hot water and place on rack underneath cheesecake.
  8. Bake 1 hour 25 minutes or until cheesecake is firm on top but filling is still jiggly when gently shaken.
