Peach Napoleons

I was inspired to make a yummy dessert the other night. Inspired by a restaurant I went to where they had peach napoleons on the menu. I didn't have one but when I saw them on the dessert tray I thought "I can do that". The restaurant used puff pastry for the outside. Puff pastry is one of lifes greatest pleasures but it's loaded with fat and I didn't have any in my pantry. Here's my version:

Slice 2 peaches and toss in a bowl with a tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 tsp almond extract. Set aside in fridge for an hour or so.

Heat oven to 400. Place wonton wrappers on a cookie sheet and lightly sprinkle with sugar. Bake 5 minutes ( or maybe 10, I cant remember).

Mix 1c marscapone cheese with 1/4 c powdered sugar. Set aside.

When ready to serve, place a wonton on the plate, spread with cheese mixture, top with a few peaches. Repeat.

I think it was very yummy and it's an easy, fast, fresh summer treat!

O.k., this looks really good but I have to comment about the fact that you did NOT have puff pastry in your pantry but you did, in fact, have wanton wrappers and marscarpone cheese.

How does that make sense Prof. Harvey? Tell me how?

I completely agree with Connie! I don't even know what marscarpone cheese is.
