Phyllo Napoleons

Total Time: 25 MIN Makes: 4 napoleons
Prep Time: 15 MIN Cook Time: 10 MIN

These light, flaky pastry layers used in desserts and entrees can take on a sweet or savory filling.

  • 14 sheets Athens® Phyllo Dough (9″ x 14″), thawed
  • Cooking spray, as needed
  • 2 cups sweet fillings
  • Garnish, as desired


Preheat the oven to 4001/4F. Lay one sheet of Phyllo on the work surface. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Repeat with six additional sheets of Phyllo. Cut the Phyllo stack in half lengthwise. Then cut it horizontally into thirds, creating six squares. Repeat to create 12 Phyllo squares.
Place the Phyllo squares on an ungreased baking sheet with a baking sheet pressed over the top to prevent the Phyllo from curling. Bake for about 7 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned. Check occasionally for doneness.
Remove from the oven and cool.
Place a cooled Phyllo square on a plate. Top the Phyllo with one quarter cup of savory or sweet filling. Place the second Phyllo square on top and repeat topping with another quarter cup of filling. Place another Phyllo square on top. Top the Phyllo with a dollop of filling and garnish. Repeat to create four napoleons. Serve immediately.
