The pictures of this one intimidated me and then the recipe assuaged me. It was basically an assembly recipe with very little baking. I had to only bake the phyllo strips mounded into little nests, after dousing them with some butter and sugar. Simple.
The other assembly parts were some whipped cream, ice cream ( I used store bought frozen yogurt), skewered fruit and a chunky fruit puree with mint. Simple.
The ironic part of this recipe was that it called for raspberries. The kiddos and I had just picked pounds of the season's first raspberries but froze them or sauced them all. No fresh ones left. But we did have strawberries and blueberries so we subbed those in. Simple.
Although difficult to eat, much like the recent tropical napoleons, they were delicious. They tasted like summer on a plate.
