Greek milk pie recipe

Greek milk pie is a traditional Greek delicacy. In the rest of the Balkan is not so popular, unduly.

Preparation of Greek milk pie

Over a slow medium heat mix all the ingredients and the rind of one lemon, except the butter, stirring occasionally until the mixture becomes a thick cream. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a small pan melt the butter. Butter a baking pan and place 1 of the pastry sheets. Butter the sheet and repeat with 5 more.

Pour the mixture on the sheets and cover with the rest of the pastry sheets, making sure each one is lightly buttered. Bake in a oven at 200°C (400°F) for about 30-45 minutes.

While the galactoboureko is cooling, make the syrup. Mix all the ingredients in a pot until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the syrup over the cooled dessert.

Advice:

You should never blend or stir the syrup, while it is boiling, just let the sugar dissolve.
