What would you call this dessert?

I don't know what to call this desert I made yesterday. I started with a package of frozen phylo dough. I removed several sheets of the dough and placed them flat in a 9 by 15 inch cake pan. I spooned 1 can of cherry pie filling evenly over the dough, taking care not to tear or bunch the delicate phylo. I placed another 5 or 6 sheets of dough and covered with a pear pie filling I made myself. Follow with another several sheets of dough and cover with more pear pie filling, mixed with raspberry pie filling. Top with more dough, spread with melted butter, sugar, and cinamon. Finally, top with remaining sheets of dough and brush with egg-wash. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake in 425 degree oven for thirty minutes.

I don't know what it's called, but topped with whipped cream, it sure did taste great. Made if for a steak and rice/w/crab and mushroom dinner for my sister's birthday.

I know, it's not a birthday cake, but she loved it, even took 2/3rds of it home for later.

Anybody have a genuine name for this type of desert?

I was thinking a rather large Napoleon also.

Allright then. Unless someone comes up with a better name, Goodweed's Napolean it is, or maybe I should just call it G.W. Napolean.

I would call it a mille-feuille. The literal meaning is "thousand leaves" and is used to describe layered dishes like the one you made.

Sounds good. I would call it Strudel-like.

A Napolean, is custard filled and baklova has nuts and honey - as I recall.

Triple decker strudel was what I first thought of. I like ironchef's suggestion, sounds elegant and fancy.

Ironchef, your professional background shows through. But I'm not sure I could pronounce that (phonetically - mini fweel). That said, I know that the people in my neck of the woods wood think me an absolute snob, or at least, someone who's too big for their britches, should I present something with that name at one of our pot lucks at work. Around here, people have difficulties pronoucing lasagna, or quesadilla, or tortilla. Many pronounce an Americanized Mexican cheese dip (queso dip) con kwayso (phonetic pronunciation again), not understanding that the "qu" makes a hard "k" sound, and that con means with.

Yup, we're just simple yoopers up here, putineer Canadians. We play eucher and eat venison jerkey all day, when we're not fishin' through a hole in the ice.
