The possibilities for the filling in a Napoleon recipe are endless. One of my favorites is a Lemon Cream Napoleon. The cream filling is made one day and then stored in the fridge overnight.
Lemon zest and lemon juice in the cream filling are the low calorie ingredients. But listen to this - you need to add 8 whole eggs, two egg yolks, three cups of sugar and three sticks of butter!
Most people buy the fillo pastry. Prepare according to package directions. It's much easier than preparing your own.
When preparing the layers - use four layers of pastry and three of the filling. Prepare some blackberries and crush them - add berries and sprinkle some powdered sugar on top. This makes about eight servings. That amounts to quite a bit of sugar and butter per person - oh well!
It takes some time and patience to make this delicate dessert, but well worth it!
