    Desree42's Note:

    This is a great and dramatic dessert. The creme brulée here can be cooked traditionally and 'bruléed in a ramekin, but the ability to assemble these napoleons and have the differing textures between the puff pastry, roasted fruits, and the creamy creme brulée is what makes this dish a surefire seller! Note--each of the pieces can be kept individually for several days (up to a week) but once assembled this item need to be served fairly quickly. Any fruit can be used, use what's fresh and in season and enjoy!
