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!
Crust was soggy.... and the blueberry juices drain into the cheese cake and made is soggy, too!
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.
I needed a very special birthday cake for the 4th of July. Doubling the recipe and baking in a deep springform pan, I outlined a large star in blueberries, then stacked slices of strawberries in the center, topped with jelly. Baking time was increased to one hour, definitely put tinfoil cap around crust when baking that last hour. I think this recipe will become a July 4th tradition!
This was so easy and so tasty! I didn't have time to let the phyllo dough thaw, so I used a pre-made graham cracker crust instead and it turned out just fine. The hardest part was making the star on top of the pie!
Once in a great while I add a recipe to my permanent collection. This is one of them. What a fantastic recipe. Very delicious and quite simple to make even though it can appear intimidating. Don't make it with anything but the phyllo dough crust - it's part of what makes this a stunning dessert. Come to my house every July 4th - this will be on the menu!
This was my first attempt at a homemade Holiday dessert. I usually have watermelon and ice cream. I opted for something different and boy was this a hit. I had very little difficulty in preparation and the reward was well worth the effort.
