Everyone I've made this dessert for has loved it, they don't even realize that they're eating a much healthier dessert than usual! I usually make half of the recipe in a pie pan, which means half the phyllo dough, and I fold over all the edges to make a strange looking little tart thing. Strange, but delicious! I only use egg whites and not a whole egg, and I use light cream cheese. I usually top half with fresh chopped strawberries and the other half with raspberries/blackberries and blueberries, so people can choose whichever they like better. And I use spray Crisco butter instead of brushing the sheets with butter, much faster and lighter this way! I top it with powdered sugar after it's finished baking. Mmm!
This pie was good- the crust was a little too insubstantial to accomodate all the filling, so it often fell apart when serving- be sure to cool completely before serving, as per instructions, but even this doesn't prevent accidents! I made my own apple filling, and I used about half the cream cheese and it was fine. I also spread a bit of melted butter on top of the pie before baking and sprinkled it with suger and cinnamon to make a nice taste. Next time I will probably sprinkle this mixture in between some of the layers of the crust, too, to make it a little more flavorful. On the whole, tasty and unique, but not amazing.
i tried mine with canned peaches and kiwis. it turned out great. not too sweet or heavy. i ate it for dessert and breakfast!
Delicious! I used blueberry pie filling and non-fat cream cheese as well as more phyllo dough on the bottom and top. My family ate this one up in one night.
I made this dessert and it was a hit! Everyone loved it. It was the right combination af creamy filling and melt in your mouth crust!
Recieved absolutely rave reviews, though I myself wasn't as crazy about it. I used blueberry pie filling. The cream cheese mix was very delicious, but I think I might have done better using a different filling. It definitely wasn't your traditional pie, and you shouldn't expect it to act exactly like one. It was very tasty though, and easy for what it was. My mom said it might have been the best thing she ever had, though that might have been heat of the moment reviewing.
Okay. Not fabulous. Won't make again.
This worked out great. Instead of pie filling, I used sliced strawberries lightly dusted with sugar.
