MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2014

Sorry, but this turned into the biggest mess I have ever had. It would have been more than sufficient to have used two sheets of phyllo, but eight was a big mess. I was baking it for a birthday cake and ended up having to separate each sheet to finish baking. I set my timer for 7 min ... 4 times! I finally decided it was not going to get done unless I separated the sheets and baked them. At this late time I am stuck with serving what I could salvage. What a mess.

This was a good for a friend's "birthday cake" since she was on a diet. It is satisfying but we all ate more than one piece

I used Bananas instead of Kiwi and Dark Chocolate and it was delicious.

I wouldn't bake the dough as long as directed next time - it browned too much. Would love to try this with black raspberries. I loved that the phyllo dough stayed crisp even with the topping on it.
