A National Cream Cheese Brownie would not be complete without tasting a greasy or creamy Cheese Brownie.
History of National Cream Cheese Brownie Day
To understand National Cream Cheese Brownie Day, it is important that you know the ingredients - cream cheese and macaroons!
Cream cheese, or at least certain forms of it, has been found in culinary records in Europe for hundreds of years. In England, it was mentioned since the early 1583! In France, the earliest records date back to 1651. So apparently, at least in Europe, they started enjoying that morning cream cheese.
Made from a combination of milk and cream, the cheese today recognized as cream cheese did not first appear on the market in the United States until 1873, when it was first commercially produced series. William A. Lawrence introduced the final product led to the Philadelphia Brand. Hailing from Chester, New York, he is the dairy farmer who gets this delectable cheese from farms to countertops and ultimately into macaroons!
Speaking of macaroons, the ugly, decadent, and sinful thing most people so dearly love appeared in the American culinary record in 1906. However, something called “marzipan” did not back to most of the 1800s.
Legend has it that Bertha Palmer, of the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, asked a pastry chef to create something new to match a packed lunch for women attending Chicago World's Colombian Expo in 1893.
The modern version of the marzipan first appeared in a cookbook published by the Boston Culinary School. This recipe was not quite as delectable as many would expect these days as it only required two chocolate baking squares, but it can be credited with starting what has now become a real indulgence.
The combination of creamy macaroons and delicious cream cheese seems like a great reason to celebrate – and so National Cream Cheese Brownie Day is on the calendar!
How to Celebrate National Cream Cheese Brownie Day
Of course, there are many ways for you to choose! Sometimes referred to as "Cheesecake Brownies," this delicious treat is sure to please the taste buds. Consider the following ways to celebrate National Cream Cheese Brownie Day:
Whip Up Some Yummy Cream Cheese Brownies
I suggest that the first thing you do is run - not walk but run into the kitchen and find your favorite marzipan recipe. Now, take your favorite brand of cream cheese to add to the macaroons.
There are many varieties on the market today that are up to you, but the Philadelphia Brand (by Kraft) is a popular brand that can be found all over the world. Those who want to make this a little lower in calories can choose a "light" or "low-fat" version of cream cheese to mix into their macaroons.
Other ingredients that may be needed to make these macaroons from scratch may include:
- Chocolate or cocoa powder squares
- Vanilla extract or flavoring
Now that you have these, it is time to get started! Mix the brownies well, and then fold the cream cheese mixture into the dough to form an attractive swirly texture. Bake according to recipe instructions, let cool, and then start celebrating in earnest!
Do you have a favorite recipe? Try typing “cream cheese macaroons” into a search engine and do not be surprised at the number of options at your fingertips.
This is really a great day for people who do not have good cooking skills. Instead of making macaroons from scratch, a canned mix will suit those who are not very good bakers. Once the cream cheese is folded, no one will even guess that it was prepared using a pre-made box!
Organize a Brownie Cream Cheese Party
It is definitely a day to celebrate, maybe better with friends! Therefore, that means you can make more than one recipe to sample and share with your loved ones, right. In fact, bring some life back and enjoy the dreary mid-February by getting some friends or family together to enjoy some cream cheese macaroons with you. (For those of you who do not like the taste of cream cheese or who don't eat dairy, it is easy to mix up a simple batch!)
Organize a brownie baking party
For those of you who do not have time to prep, a Cream Cheese Baking Festival is a great way to celebrate the day with friends – and make your own! Ask each guest to bring in a different recipe and hold a taste test to see who the best is!
Best Pairs for Brownies
While they will certainly handcraft a lovely treat, many people love to pair their macaroons with other things as a complete set. Try these combinations on National Cream Cheese Brownie Day:
- Milk. There is nothing like enjoying a hot macaroon with a tall glass of milk! For those without dairy, almonds, soy, or other non-dairy alternatives also work.
- Cream. A large scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of warm macaroons is perfect. Because almost any dessert can be tastier when it's 'a regimen'.
Sorry, I left you here so I could make my own batch… Happy National Cream Cheese Brownie Day!
