This dessert is one of those dishes that looks a mess but earns rave reviews. Making the whipped cream is a cinch too. Mix, layer, bake and top with homemade whipped cream, and what results is a bright orange creamy-crunchy dessert that every will want more of for midnight cravings. (Leftover alert: substitute baked sweet potatoes for leftover sweet potato casserole.)


Select ingredients:


  1. Bake sweet potatoes until soft. Peel sweet potatoes and place in a large mixing bowl. Mix in 1 / 2 stick of butter and salt. Let cool.
  2. Add two egg yolks and half of the sugar and mix on high until mixture is well whipped. Generously tote bottom of baking dish with butter.
  3. Layer phyllo sheets, brush with butter, then sweet potato, then phyllo and so on for at least three layers. Top with one final sheet, brush with butter.
  4. Bake at 400° for about 20 minutes or until sheets brown.
  5. While the Napoleon is cooking, blend heavy whipping cream and sugar in a blender until thick. Refrigerate whipped cream and let Napoleon cool before topping.
