what you need
  • 1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks)
  • 3/4 lb. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 8 large eggs, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups granulated sugar, divided
  • 4 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 lb. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 cup apricot jam
  • 1 cup pumpkin butter
make it
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and lightly butter. Melt the butter and chocolate. Whisk 6 eggs, brown sugar, and 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar together. Stir in 3 tablespoons vanilla, salt, melted chocolate, flour and cocoa. Pour into the prepared pan.

Beat cream cheese using a mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add the remaining 2 eggs, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla and the cornstarch; beat until smooth and spread over the chocolate batter.

Combine jam and pumpkin batter. Drop in spoonfuls onto cream cheese and draw swirls using a knife.

Bake until center tests clean - about 40 minutes. Cool and punch out shapes using cutters.
This recipe was originally meant for Halloween, so that's why pumpkin is associated. It would work well for any Autumn occasion, though!
