Milk Pie

Galaktoboureko (Milk Pie)


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 12 Phyllo pastry sheets
  • rind of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup fine semolina
  • 11/2 litter milk
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 11/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 cups caster sugar

2 cups caster sugar
2 cups water
2 large lemon peels
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. 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.
2. In a small pan melt the butter. Butter a baking pan and place 1 of the phyllo sheets. Butter the sheet and repeat with 5 more.
3. Pour the mixture on the sheets and cover with the rest of the phyllo pastry sheets, making sure each one is lightly buttered. Bake in a oven at 200C (400F) for about 30-45 minutes.
4. 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.
