Berry Cheesecake Pie Recipe
- 8 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup strawberry jelly
- 1 cup whipped topping
- Sliced fresh strawberries and additional blueberries, optional
- 1. Place one phyllo sheet in a greased 9-in. pie plate; brush with butter. Repeat seven times; trim edges. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
- 2. Bake at 425° for 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned (center will puff up). Cool on a wire rack.
- 3. For filling, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Fold in blueberries. Spoon into crust.
- 4. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes; cover edges with foil to prevent overbrowning. Bake 23-27 minutes longer or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled.
- 5. In a small bowl, beat jelly until smooth; spread over filling. Spread with whipped topping. Garnish with strawberries and additional blueberries if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.

Reviews for Berry Cheesecake Pie
"Kind of heavy and disappointing. Crust was interesting. Next time I would do graham cracker crust."
"This recipe would be greatly improved if it instructed that a fork be used to poke holes through the layers of phyllo dough prior to browning the crust. That will reduce the puffing of the layers during baking."
"love the phyllo crust. awesome pie"
"Delicious! Have made this recipe several times. So easy. So very very good!"
"Easy to make excellent pie! I made graham cracker crust and used raspberry jam as that is what I had it was a delicious!"
"So good and light. Made it for dessert tonight, but didn't realize how long it took to cool. If you plan on making this for a special occasion, plan ahead."
"In spite of completely messing up the crust, the filling was yummy. I let the phyllo defrost on the counter and could not get the sheets apart. $4.34 down the tubes :("
"Everyone who doesn't make the phyllo dough is missing out on the best part of this dessert! Take the few minutes it takes to make the special crust. Just fab!"
"Made this for a local fair this weekend. Just changed one little thing and that was to sprinkle a little sugar on the edges of the phyllo. Won "Best in Show" with it. Very excellent idea with the phyllo. Not only will I be making this again, but I'll be making it right away. My husband tried bidding on it but the price went way too high."
"Something so easy shouldn't taste so good..."
"This is WONDERFUL! I changed the recipe a little bit. Used a 9x13 glass pan, made a graham cracker crust, doubled everything else, except for the blueberries. I also made real whipped cream and grated some white chocolate on top. DELICIOUS!!! (Microwave the jelly a little bit, it will be easier to spread.)"
"Made this two times within a week. Amazing! Used ready-made graham cracker crust instead. I made two cheesecakes (different recipe) about a month ago and neither turned out. This was EASY! Turned out great!!"
"I think I would use a graham cracker crust."
"I'm not a fan of cheesecake but I made this for Thanksgiving since my hubsand loves cheesecake, he and everyone else enjoyed it very much. I skipped the phyllo dough and used a graham crust instead."
"A real winner, so easy to substitute the low fat cream cheese and cool whip, I left out the jam, mainly because I forgot to buy it, so just added more fresh strawberries on each slice...a real keeper, love the phyllo dough, must try that in other pie recipes!"
"My husband & I Loved it! Yes a little extra work using the phyllo dough which made it different but it was wonderful. Will use the same dough when I make my next apple pie!"
"Creamy and delicious. The pie was gone in a flash which means that the next time I make it for a family gathering I will make 2 Berry Cheesecakes! I think we now have a new family tradition."
"This was a fantastic dessert for the fourth of July. It was really pretty easy too. Substitutions - I used a graham cracker crust and lite Cool Whip to cut some calories and fat, and I put strawberries over the jelly layer and then raspberries on top of the Cool Whip. Definitely would make again!"
"I only figure up the carbohydrates for my son, so I can help with that. If you make your crust using 1 1/4 c. crumbs, 4 T butter, and Splenda the crust will have almost 88 carbohydrates. Using your ingredients, 1/6th of the pie will be almost 24.5 carbohydrates and 1/8th of the pie will be almost 18.25 carbohydrates. If you need to know the calories and fat you can figure those up if you have the Calorie King book. I use mine all the time to figure out the carbohydrates. It takes time, but it helps keep my son's blood sugar within range."
"Very easy! I made this with a Graham Cracker Crust and my Husband Loved IT!!!"
"This was deeeeelicious! To lighten it up a little I used splenda, one reg. cream cheese and one neufchatel cheese, graham cracker crust, put a layer of strawberries on top of jam and used light whipped cream on individual slices. Will definitly be making this again and again!"
"OK, as a diabetic I ask, if you use low fat cream cheese, splenda, graham cracker crust, no sugar type jelly, what is the carb ct/nutritional value per serving? Anybody know?"
"Could you use a butter spray instead of actual butter on the phyllo?"
"I would make this in a 9-inch springform pan vice a pie plate. Not so sure about the phyllo because of the calories. You can substitute lo-fat cream cheese and reduced-fat jelly if you'd prefer. If you're going to use whipped topping, do yourself a great favor and make your own--it's easy! Whip 1 cup of cream in a stand mixer using a whipping attachment. Ship until soft peaks form. Add sugar--you can do this to taste, but start off with at least 2 tsp. Whip until stiff peaks form, then proceed with the recipe. You can double the recipe to get the quantity needed for this size cheesecake. For the crust use 1 1/2 cups graham crackers (pulse in a food processor until smooth), 3 tbs melted butter, and 1 tbs sugar. Combine and press into bottom and slightly up sides of springform pan. bake 10 minutes at 350 and then let cool."
"It was very good. I didn't have phyllo dough so I used a graham cracker crust instead. First brushed on beaten egg white to prevent crust from getting soggy. Then baked it in a 350 oven for 5 minutes before adding filling. Yummm....."
"I also made with splenda and sugar free strawberries jam. The whole family loved it. I will ldefinitely make again. One pie just isn't enough."
"Very, very tasty! I almost didn't make it because it is so high in calories, sugar, and fat. BUT I made it healthier by using Splenda, sugar free jam, and whipping heavy cream myself for the topping. Equally yummy and I can feel better about eating it for me and my family!"
"THIS IS FANTASTIC!!! I omitted the phyllo dough and made my own pie crust. Sometimes I just buy already made crust and it turns out great too!!! This is a keeper!!!"
"This is so good!!! Easy to make and fun love it!!!"
"The first time I made this receipe I did not have any phyllo dough. After reading reviews I decided to make a homemade graham cracker crust. It was very good but...... this time I got the phyllo dough. WOW!! I'll never made it with the graham cracker crust again. This is a great company dessert but far too dangerous to have around often. If I did, I'd end being 200lbs!!"
"This was amazing - I got a ton of compliments and will definitely make it again. I used a graham cracker crust which was excellent and added sliced strawberries to the jelly layer. Very good!"
"I used seedless raspberry jam and it was wonderful - next time I'll use black raspberry."
"This was excellent! I didn't have phyllo dough, so I made a graham cracker crust. I did not have jelly, so I thawed some frozen mixed berries, sweetened them slightly, and substituted them for the jelly. It turned out great. Thanks for the excellent recipe."
"This recipe is wonderful. I took it to a BBQ yesterday and everyone wanted the recipe. I did follow others advice and use a graham cracker crust. I will definitely make this again."
"THIS IS AWESOME!!! I took to a party and everyone was asking for the recipe. I used pre-made pie dough though. Will make it often!"
"THIS IS AWESOME!!! I took to a party and everyone was asking for the recipe. Will make it often!"
"Thanks for this lovely recipe. First time ever to make a baked cheesecake.Followed the advice of jdkahle by mixing some cream cheese with the melted butter and adding sugar to the phyllo pastry, excellent tip. simply delicious. Filling nice and moist, unlike many baked cheesecakes.Will definately make again."
"I'm not fond of phyllo and don't think a traditional pie crust is appropriatet for cheesecake but we love graham cracker crust for cheesecake. I made a graham cracker crust from scratch and with the blueberries, I added raspberries that I recently picked. I used canned whipped cream and put on each slice as I served. Delicious!"
"We love this. I don't put the whipped topping on top; I squirt whipped cream on each piece I serve. We preferred a graham cracker crust. Delightful!"
"We really enjoyed this recipe only I used ready made graham cracker crust. That combination really tasted great."
"The crust was not as tasty as I thought it would be. I may try this again with a regular pie crust or graham cracker crust. I think I will add some slice strawberries to the jelly layer too. The filling was very good!"
"Why use strawberry jelly when fresh strawberries are handy?"
"It was a little plain tasting. I definitely expected it to be better. but i would like to try brushing the crust with the cream cheese and sugar."
"When I made this pie, since I don't care for crust either, I added 3 tablespoons of softened Cream Cheese to the butter that I was brushing the Phyllo dough with, after brushing each piece I then sprinkled it with small amount of sugar and continued until I reached the final layer which I also brushed with the butter/creamcheese mixure and sprinkled with sugar. I also pricked holes in the bottom of the Phyllo Dough to avoid the bubbling of the crust. This was a wonderful, Thanks for sharing the recipe.jdkahle"
"I prefer a graham cracker crust with cheesecake so I used a ready-made graham cracker crust. I mixed seedless raspberry jam with the strawberry jelly, also. This pie is so delicious. A great way to use up an abudance of blueberries and strawberries. Definately a keeper!"
"This pie was totally awsome!!!! I will be preparing this for future events."
