Prep Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

Servings: 8

Calories: 496

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jelly
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 sheets phyllo dough

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. Press this 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 the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs until well combined. Pour 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 burning slightly, 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.
  6. Top with whipped cream.
