Berrylicious!

After seeing a lady on a cooking show do this, then finding it in a cookbook, I thought I'd give it a try. Berry Napoleons. Sounds elegant, fancy, and difficult, doesn't it? Not in the least! Here's how you do it:
-take wonton wrappers (we used round ones-found in the natural foods refrigerated section) and place them on a baking sheet sprayed w/ cooking spray; spray the tops of the wrappers and sprinkle with sugar; bake in at 400 for 5 min.
-on the plate, layer a wonton, dollop of pastry cream, and a few berries; repeat and top w/ a wonton; sprinkle w/ powdered sugar
(I got an easy pastry cream recipe off the internet, but you could easily use whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping.)

So pretty and SOOO delicious!

As one of those allowed to partake of this dessert, I can honestly say that the picture does not do it justice! It was absolutely wonderful, and my second helping even better.

I forgot to mention in the post, but my first pastry cream was a disaster! I cooked it too long and the eggs broke down and separated. What I served was "take 2" using a slightly different recipe.

That close up photo is just wrong! I usually drool at this stuff from a distance but the detail here is enough to send me running to the store! Now I want some berries!

Pastry cream is like a custard. It's an all-purpose cream that can be used for tarts, filling doughnuts, etc. (Not that I've ever done any of that, LOL!) The first recipe I tried was from Somersize Desserts, but that's the one that "broke down" when I cooked it to long. The other I got off allrecipes just doing a search for pastry cream. It was actually really easy!
