  3. To assemble, take 1 phyllo sheet and lay on a clean surface. Spray using a light layer of an oil based cooking spray

  6. Fold the top portion of your phyllo over the berries and cheesecake, then fold in your two side to enclose everything and roll.

  8. Bake for 10 minutes and remove to oven to cool
  9. Chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Dust with powdered sugar prior to serving.
