Berry Cheesecake Pie ~ By Gidget

WOW! People are stepping up to the plate and expiermenting with foods. It's just like high school chemistry. You know, when you mix different chemicals together and sometimes you make a bomb. But other times you create a cure for the common cold!

Well, a friend of mine from Obesity Help Tennessee Forum has come up with a cure for the common cold. If not the cold, I'm sure it will be a cure for something since it looks and sounds so good! I plan on making it sometime this week. After I begged for "Food Porn", she obliged and sent a picture! So, THANKS to Gidget for this scrumptious summer time treat!

8 sheets phyllo dough
6 tbsp i can't believe its not butter melted
2 packages fat free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups fresh or frozen mixed berries (I used frozen mixed raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries
1/2 cup sugar free blackberry jam(I made myself!)
1 cup sugar free whipped cream

Place one sheet of phyllo dough in a greased 9 in pie plate brush with butter. Repeat 7 times; trim edges. Bake at 425 for 6-8 minutes until edges are golden brown. Cool on wire rack. For filling mix cream cheese, splenda, and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs, beat on low until just combined. Fold in the berries. 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 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 additional berries.
