This recipe, although similar to the Tropical Napoleons, was it’s own creation. All of my tasters agreed the truly fantastic dessert would be to combine the two. Keep the meringue and tropical fruit from the Napoleons and add the raspberry puree and ice cream from the sandwich. They said THAT would be perfection! My tasters take their job seriously haha!
This recipe gets its name from the phyllo dough getting cut into ribbons which look very much like fettuccine…hence the name phylloccine.
The phylloccine then gets placed into mounds and sprinkled with butter and sugar and baked until golden brown.
While they are baking, you whip up some raspberry puree and homemade whipped cream. It is really easy to assemble these…although I tried making the fruit skewer to come out of the top and it just wouldn’t stay up. After the first one, we just put the fruit around the ice cream sandwich and that seemed to work out just fine. 😉 It is a keeper!
