Directions:

  1. Prepare the brownie mix as directed on the package. Coat the bottom only of a 9-x-13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray, and spread the mixture evenly in the pan. Set aside.
  2. Place the cream cheese and sugar in a medium-sized bowl, and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the flour, and beat to mix well. Add the egg substitute and vanilla extract, and beat to mix well.
  3. Pour the cheese mixture over the brownie batter in an "S" pattern. Then draw a knife through the batter to create a marbled effect.
  4. Bake at 325°F for 30 to 33 minutes, or just until the edges are firm and the center is almost set. Be careful not to overbake.
  5. Allow the brownies to cool to room temperature before cutting into squares and serving. For easier cutting, rinse the knife off periodically.
