First of all, I want to thank everyone for their comments and opinions about my last post. It really made me feel a lot better about where I belong in this whole food blogging world!

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not an entertainer. But if I was, this simple dessert would be in my repertoire. It really doesn’t get any easier or faster than this. If I didn’t have to wait for the oven to pre-heat, I could have had these done in under 10 minutes easy. And not only are they easy and impressive looking, they are tasty!

Now, I’m sure this has been done before, but the sugared wonton wrappers are shear genius in my mind. Five minutes to prepare, and I could have honestly eaten them alone and been happy. But paired with freshly whipped cream and fresh peaches, it was a match made in heaven. I did change up the original recipe, which is one thing that is great about this recipe – and most of Robin Miller’s recipes that I’ve made so far. Her recipe called for canned mandarin oranges, which would have been delicious, but I thought I’d use fresh produce since it’s that time of year. My original thought was to see if there were any good berries at the store, but then I remembered that is peach season and decided to pick up some local peaches. And if you want to, you could always use already prepared whipped topping or Cool Whip to make this even faster, but to me, there is nothing better than freshly whipped cream, sweetened with a bit of sugar. And really, it took me all of 2 minutes to pour the cream in a bowl and beat it with my hand mixer.

These are a little messy to eat, but worth every bite. And since I have a partially used package of wonton wrappers in my fridge now, I’m sure we’ll be enjoying this dessert all weekend long!

Peach Napoleons with Sugared Wonton Wrappers
adapted from Quick Fix Meals

Serves 4

cooking spray
12 wonton wrappers
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup fresh prepared sweetened whipped cream
2 fresh peaches, cleaned and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a large cooking sheet with cooking spray.

Lay the wonton wrappers on the prepared sheet in a single layer. Lightly spray the tops with cooking spray. Sprinkle sugar evenly over the wrappers.

Cook in the preheated oven for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven.

To arrange, place four of the wonton wrappers on a serving plate or on individual dessert dishes. Top each wonton with 2 tablespoons of the whipped cream, followed by 1/4 of a peach. Top with a second wonton wrapper. Repeat layer with 2 tablespoons whipped cream and 1/4 of a peach. (For a total of half a peach for each dessert.) Top with the remaining wonton wrappers.

Sift powdered sugar over the tops and serve.

    For someone who always have wonton wrappers in fridge, I have never used it for sweet/dessert type of dish. I know. I am so non-adventureous. :D But after looking at this beautiful dessert, I think I will be making this for next dinner party.

  19. Pam says:

    What a lovely and delicate dessert. I just made a peach crisp and the peaches were amazing so I am excited to try another dessert using them.

  20. Sophie says:

    Yay for using peaches! Sounds so yummy. I don’t really throw parties either, but I do have a mental list of things I’d want to make if I did ;), these would make it on the list :D. They are too cute!

  21. Emiline says:

    I’m glad you used peaches. Fresh peaches are so much better than mandarin oranges. One time mandarin oranges made me sick..so, I’m against them now.

    These look so fancy! I like it.
