Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes:

I’m all about making entertaining easier, which is why I love this Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes recipe. What keeps things simple is using pre-made phyllo pastry shells for the base. Because there’s no fusing with dough, the hands-on time for preparing this adorable little dessert is minimal.

The resulting dessert has lots of flavor and texture. The phyllo cups are crunchy, the cheesecake is creamy and tangy, and the blueberry sauce is sweet and bright. When I was photographing these mini cheesecakes for the blog, it took all of my willpower to stop eating them. They are that good!

Almost anyone can make these Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes. Let me walk you through the steps.

How to Make Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes:

Start by baking the mini phyllo cups. Yes, they are pre-baked straight from the freezer, but this step makes them crispy and even tastier.

While the phyllo cups bake and then cool, prepare the cheesecake mixture and blueberry sauce. You can find the full ingredient list and step-by-step instructions for each in the printable recipe card below.

The cream cheese filling is a combination of cream cheese, sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer until the filling is smooth and creamy. To make it easier to fill the cups, I recommend transferring the mixture to a piping bag. I like to keep a supply of these piping bags in my pantry.

No piping bag? No worries! Just use a plastic baggie with the corner cut off.

The blueberry sauce is also a breeze to make. In a saucepan, heat fresh blueberries and sugar with a splash of water and cinnamon. Cook until the blueberries burst and the sauce thickens. Let this cool. Then, mix in a half-cup of fresh blueberries. This gives the sauce the look of blueberries and adds another layer of blueberry flavor.

Next, you’re ready to assemble cheesecakes. Pipe the cream cheese mixture into the phyllo cups and then top each cup with a little blueberry sauce.

Made with store-bought phyllo pastry shells, these Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes will quickly become your new go-to entertaining dessert. They are simple to put together, and look like a professional baker created them. Best of all, they're delicious!

Ingredients

  • 3 packages frozen mini phyllo pastry shells - thawed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese - softened
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
Blueberry Sauce:
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries - divided
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Begin by preheating the oven to 375 degrees F. Lay out the mini phyllo shells on a baking sheet. Bake 5-6 minutes or until just golden brown. Cool completely.
  • While the baked phyllo shells cool, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, lemon zest, vanilla, and sugar until smooth. This will take about 3 minutes. Transfer the cream cheese mixture to a piping bag or plastic baggie. Cut off one corner of the baggie. Pipe this mixture evenly amongst the cooled phyllo shells.
  • Next, prepare the blueberry sauce by adding 1 cup of blueberries, sugar, water, and cinnamon to a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat for about 8 minutes. Stir continuously. The berries will burst, and the sauce will thicken.
  • Remove the blueberry sauce from the heat and allow to cool. Then, stir in the remaining 1/2 cup fresh blueberries. Spoon the blueberry sauce over the cream cheese mixture.
  • Enjoy right away or cover and chill until you're ready to serve.

    Can you make cream cheese filling in advance and assemble the day after?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Sure! The filling only takes a few minutes to make, but you can definitely prep that in advance. Just note that you will need to soften it in order to pipe it.

    Where did you purchase the mini phyllo cups? I am having trouble locating them.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I found them at my local grocery store. They are in the freezer section near the puff pastry and frozen pie crusts. Hope that helps!
