Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. On a flat surface, place one sheet of phyllo dough. Brush it with melted butter, and cover with another piece of phyllo. Repeat until all 8 sheets are used. Using kitchen scissors, cut layered phyllo into a 12- to 13-inch circle. Carefully press circle into a greased 9-inch pie plate; gently fan edges. Bake in preheated oven until edges are just golden, 6 to 8 minutes; cool slightly on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs until well combined. Fold in 1 cup of blueberries. Pour filling into prepared crust.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until set, 40 to 50 minutes. To prevent the crust from over-browning, gently cover pie with foil for the last 25 minutes of baking. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. In a small bowl, beat jelly until smooth; spread over cheese filling. Arrange 1 cup blueberries on top in a star pattern.

OUTSTANDING! I didn't use the phyllo crust, but used a ready bake graham cracker crust. Everything else stayed the same. This cheesecake presents and eats beautifully. Delicious!

This cheesecake was WONDERFUL! I made it for 4th of July and ended up having to make another the following day by request. This was my first time using phyllo dough & it was well worth it; everyone commented on its wonderful taste & uniqueness. *The only thing I changed was making a flag design rather than the blueberry star. To make the flag I used blueberry preserves, strawberry preserves, and piped the stars & stripes out of cool whip.

I made this for July 4th '05 and everyone loved it! I accidently bought puff pastry sheets instead of phyllo dough. I didn't use any butter, but used 2 sheets of puff pastry. I laid them 45 degrees apart in the 9 in. pie plate so I had an 8 pointed star. It was a very cool effect, but use non-stick cooking spray or butter in the bottom of the pan. Thanks!! I'll make this again.
