  4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the cake is done. The cake should be set with only the center jiggly. A knife inserted one inch from the center should come out clean when done. Let cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate the cheesecake to cool completely.

Topping Your Cheesecake Brownies

Trim and slice strawberries or wash raspberries. Place a couple of tablespoons red currant jelly in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the jelly until it starts to melt, about 20 seconds. Stir in the berries.

To serve, cut the brownies into servings. Place each on a dessert plate. Top with berries and a dollop of whipped cream.
