Since I don't care for traditional pie crust, I usually only eat the pie filling. That changed when I discovered this recipe. Boasting a luscious cheesecake flavor, this pretty pie gets creative with phyllo dough. —Deanne Causey, Midland, Texas

Ingredients

  • 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

Nutritional Facts

1 piece equals 466 calories, 31 g fat (20 g saturated fat), 138 mg cholesterol, 291 mg sodium, 41 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 7 g protein.

Directions

  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.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

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.
