Nutty Cream Cheese Brownies Recipe

Looking for a great moist and delicious brownie recipe that you can make and sell at bake sales? If so, you have got to try this one! When I had to make brownies for all of my daughter's cheerleading and gymnastic bake sales...often times I would make this recipe and they always sold out quickly.

2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/3 cup softened butter
2 (3 ounce) pkgs of cream cheese, softened
