Had to amend the recipe a bit, as I could not find any phyllo. I used pastry sheets instead and layered them...still delicious!

    I'm sorry, meant to delete the 3 tbsp cream when I adjusted the amount. I'll edit that out. Thanks for catching it!

    Also Ana, I don't think it would ship well as it does need to be refrigerated after serving.
