These fruit "towers" are constructed of oven-crisped egg roll wrappers layered with whipped cream and tropical fruits.
12 egg roll wrappers
4 tbsp. (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup grated coconut
1 mango, sliced
1 papaya, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut each egg roll wrapper in half. Lightly brush both sides with melted butter. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 7 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.
2. In a bowl, with an electric mixer, whip cream until firm and thick. Beat in sugar, cream cheese, vanilla, and coconut.
3. To assemble a tower, place 1 wrapper on a dessert plate. Spread a heaping tablespoon of whipped cream mixture over wrapper. Top with a few slices of mango and papaya. Place a wrapper over the fruit. Repeat with another layer, ending with an egg roll wrapper. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
