  • 1 package Phyllo Dough
  • 4 peeled Peaches chopped
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 3 tablespoon Orange Juice Or Lemon - I like the sweetness from the Orange for this dessert
  • 2 tablespoon Butter / melted

Whipped Cream / Ice Cream

  • 1 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 Cup Heavy/Whipped Cream
  • 2 tablespoon Peach filling base


Peach Filling Base

  • In a small mixing bowl. Add the peaches, the orange juice, and the granulated sugar, and allow them to get happy together. About 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Next, notice the peaches have released some of their natural juices in the bowl. At this point, you can add the brown sugar, the cinnamon, pinch of salt into a small saucepot and cook on low until the peaches have become soft and sauce-like but with plenty of chunks of peach.

Whipped Ice Cream

  • Allow the Ice Cream to sit on the counter for a little bit. Long enough to soften so we can mix the cool whip in. Add the reserved 2 tablespoon of peach filling and cool-whip and combine together. You can place the mixture back into the freezer until you're ready to serve.

Phyllo Dough

  • Allow the Phyllo Dough to sit out at room temperature to soften and become manageable. If the Phyllo Dough is too cold it will crumble.
  • Layout one piece of Phyllo Dough and cut into fourths, cutting lengthwise and then crosswise. Two cuts making rectangles.
  • Next paint on the butter to each piece and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Laying out 12 pieces in total. Cover all 12 pieces with 3 pieces of the Phyllo Dough covered with butter creating layers that will fluffy up in the oven.


  • Take one stack of baked Phyllo Dough and place iy in the middle of the plate. Next spoon on some of the peach filling, try to resist using too much. Next, add another piece of baked Phyllo Dough, then more peach filling, and finally add the top piece of baked Phyllo Dough.
  • Try to pick out the nicest looking baked Phyllo Dough to be your presentation tops/layer.
  • Place one large scoop of the whipped peach ice cream and top with a sprinkle of Cinnamon.
  • Enjoy - Bake Phyllo Dough by package instructions, but be sure to keep an eye on it while cooking
