Ingredients
  •  Nonstick spray for baking
  • 1 3  ounce package  cream cheese, softened
  • 2  tablespoons  butter, softened
  • 1/4  cup  sugar
  • 1  egg
  • 1  tablespoon  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 3/4  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 6  ounces  unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4  cup  butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 1/4  cups  sugar
  • 4  eggs
  • 1/4  cup  milk
  • 1  tablespoon  vanilla
  • 1  teaspoon  almond extract
  • 1  cup  chopped pecans
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with heavy foil, extending foil 2 inches over edges of pan. Lightly coat foil with nonstick spray for baking; set aside.

2. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and the 2 tablespoons butter. Beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until mixture is fluffy. Gradually add the 1/4 cup sugar, beating until light. Beat in the 1 egg and the 1 tablespoon flour just until combined. Set aside.

3. In a small bowl, combine the 1-1/4 cups flour, the baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

4. In a medium saucepan, combine chocolate and the 3/4 cup butter. Cook and stir over low heat just until melted. Transfer to a large bowl. Gradually add the 2-1/4 cups sugar, beating on low speed until combined. Add the 4 eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in milk, vanilla, and almond extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture.

5. Spread the chocolate batter in the prepared baking pan. Spoon cream cheese mixture in mounds on top of chocolate batter. Using a table knife or narrow metal spatula, gently swirl the cream cheese mixture into the chocolate batter to marble. Sprinkle with pecans.

6. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Use the foil to lift uncut brownies out of pan. Cut into brownies. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes 42 servings.
