Taste of Home - try a FREE ISSUE today!

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

SERVINGS: 6-8

CATEGORY: Dessert

METHOD: Baked

TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. + chilling

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
  • 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

Directions:

Place one phyllo sheet in a greased 9-in. pie plate; brush with butter. Repeat seven times; trim edges. 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 small mixing 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 23-27 minutes longer or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled.
In a small mixing bowl, beat jelly until smooth; spread over filling. Spread with whipped topping. Garnish with strawberries and additional blueberries if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
