Make the Brownies:

  1. While baking the brownies, prepare the cheesecake layer by beating together the KIRI cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until soft.
  2. Mix in the sour cream, vanilla & cornstarch.
  3. With the mixer on low speed, carefully beat in the eggs until just combined.
  4. Spoon the batter over the top of the baked brownie layer, and spread evenly.
  5. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is just set and has a slight wobble in the middle of the pan.
  6. Turn off the oven, open the door and cool in the oven for 30 minutes.
  7. Take the cheesecake out of the oven and cool until it reaches room temperature.
  8. Wrap the pan with cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
