Berry Cheesecake Pie
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. + chilling
- 8 sheets phyllo dough (14x9 inches)
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
- 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup strawberry jelly
- 1 cup whipped topping
- Sliced fresh strawberries and additional blueberries, optional
- Place 1 phyllo sheet in a greased 9-in. pie plate; brush with butter. Repeat 7 times; trim edges. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
- Bake at 425° for 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned (center will puff up). Cool on a wire rack.
- 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.
- Bake at 350° for 10 minutes; cover edges with foil to prevent overbrowning. Bake until center is almost set, 23-27 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled.
- In a small bowl, beat jelly until smooth; spread over filling. Spread with whipped topping. Garnish with strawberries and additional blueberries if desired.
Editor's NoteIf 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.

My family loves this dessert! I made it the first time using "birthday cake" flavored oreos (yellow cookie with confetti type icing) for a cookie crust, and now they refuse to let me make it with any other crust! I've gotten rave reviews on it each time. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe

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.

I thought this could be a little sweeter and while the phyllo dough was quick and easy I found it to be flavorless. I will use a graham cracker crust or regular pie crust next time.

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 :(
