Torre de Frutas con Crema Peruana (Fruit tower with Peruvian cream)
FYI: You can reduce the cooking time by preparing the wonton wrappers in advance and by using coconut or vanilla ice cream in place of the Peruvian cream.

Ingredients:

12 large square wonton wrappers
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup grated coconut
1 mango, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1 papaya, peeled, seeded, and sliced
1/4 cup confectioners´ sugar
Preparation: Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut each wonton wrapper in half down the middle. Lightly brush both sides with melted butter. Place on cookie sheet. Bake for about 7 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. In a mixing bowl, whip cream until firm and thick. Beat in sugar, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and coconut. To assemble, place 1 wrapper on dessert plate. Spread 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 a wonton wrapper. Dust with confectioners´ sugar. Serves 8.
