I love using filo in desserts! Light flaky crispy. The possibilities are endless! Here we have the combination of a smooth creamy cheesecake layered with crispy filo and topped off with strawberry pie filling. Any fruit topping will work. Even good plain!

20 sheets filo dough
1 stick butter
24 oz cream cheese
3/4 c sugar
3 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 can strawberry pie filling

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 13 x 9 with non stick spray.
Melt butter
Mix together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs 1 at a time until well mixed.
Place 6-8 filo  sheets in bottom of pan. Butter every 2 layers. Spread half the filling. Repeat with 6-8 more sheets.again spread butter on every other sheet. Spread remaining filling. Top with remaining filo sheets.
Bake for 40 mins.
Cool and top with strawberry filling. Chill serve. Enjoy!
