Easy Cheesecake Cups

There’s a reason these are called EASY cheesecake cups! There’s only 4 ingredients, everyone loves them, and they are, in fact, ridiculously easy to make! I tend to make these for 4th of July and Memorial Day weekend most often but they are customizable for any time of year!

Calling this a recipe is almost laughable! That’s how easy these are. I’ve been making these since I was in college when I need to share a dessert and have no desire to actually cook. They are basically thrown together in less than 10 minutes!

Ingredients for the easy cheesecake cups:

  • Phyllo shell cups (found in the freezer section by the pies)
  • Ready-made cheesecake filling (found by the cream cheese)
  • Pie filling of your choice (I use strawberry)
  • Blueberries for topping

How to put together these easy little cheesecake cups:

First, you’ll add about a tablespoon of the cheesecake filling to each phyllo cup. Then top with the pie filling and finish with a blueberry on top! That’s it! That’s the whole “recipe”!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve brought this dessert to someone house and they’ve been amazed and then shocked when I tell them how easy it is! It’s the perfect impressive dessert with minimal effort!

And here’s a tip that will help you with transporting these: they fit perfectly in an egg carton! I used to try to transport these on a tray but they slide everywhere and tip over. Just place 1 cheesecake cup in each egg hole and you’re good to go. If you’re taking them to a party, just bring a pretty tray with you (if you want) to set them on.

Variations you can try:

  • Cherry or blueberry pie filling instead of strawberry
  • Top with a small mint leaf instead of a berry
  • Try apple pie filling with a sprinkle of cinnamon for a Fall treat
  • Top with fresh fruit instead of pie filling

Easy Cheesecake Cups

Prep Time10 mins
Course: Appetizer, Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 30 cups
Author: Coco and Ash


  • 2 packages of frozen phyllo cups (in the frozen dessert aisle)
  • 1 package Philadelphia No Bake Original Cheesecake Filling (found by the cream cheese section)
  • 1 can strawberry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries


  • Lay out your phyllo shells and fill each one with about 1 tablespoon of the cheesecake filling.
  • Spoon about a teaspoon of the pie filling onto each cup. I like to make sure that each cheesecake cup has a nice size chunk of fruit and filling.
  • Top each cup with a blueberry and enjoy!
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve and serve the same day as preparing. The phyllo cups will start to get too soft if left overnight.
