At Your Service Part 2 and Cream Cheese Brownies

After last weeks post I did have a request (YAY!) to create an outfit for Holiday parties. I will say this has been a little tougher than I thought because my friend, Jessica, is expecting and who knew how difficult it would be to find cute maternity clothes?? Anyway, I was definitely up for the challenge and I hope she likes it! :)

I love sweets and am always looking for "lite" recipes that are actually good. I made these over the weekend and they pass the yummy taste test!

Cream Cheese Brownies from Cooking Light


Cooking Spray
1/2 C Butter, Softened
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
2/3 C unsweetened cocoa
1/2 C fat-free milk
1 1/2 C all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1 8 ounce black 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 14 ounce can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 large egg

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Coat bottom of a 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray

To prepare batter, place butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy. Add sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat until well blended (About 5 minutes). Add egg whites and egg, 1 at a time; beating well (mixture will appear curdled). Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir with a whisk. Add to cocoa mixture; beat at low speed just until blended. Spoon batter into prepared pan.

To prepare topping, place cream cheese in a large bowl and beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Gradually add cornstarch and remaining ingredients and beat until smooth. Spread evenly over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes (mine took longer) or until set.
