Milk Custard Pie "Galaktombouriko"


Poolside's waitress, Stama Papanikolaou from the Village of Kalithies, has contributed her version of this traditional Greek Dessert.


2 pkgs. ready made fillo leaves 1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup melted butter Syrup:
Filling: 2 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 liters milk 3 1/2 cups sugar
7 tbs. rice flour 1 cinnamon stick
5 tbs. corn flour 1 peel from a lemon
1 cup sugar  

In a medium sauce pan mix the cold milk with the flours. Put over medium heat and, stirring constantly, add the sugar and vanilla. Keep stirring until the mixture thickens. Set aside.

Butter a baking pan.  Melt the remaining butter.  Spread a pastry sheet into the pan, and brush it with butter. Continue to layer pastry and butter for 7 - 8 sheets. Pour the filling over the pastry leaves, and continue to layer another 7 - 8 leaves again.   Tuck in any edges of fillo by folding them under the last layers with a generous brush of butter.  Finish off the top layer by brushing with butter and scoring diamond shapes (Baklava Style) into the fillo with a sharp knife - but not cutting through.

Bake at 350°F for about 30 minutes.

While the Galaktombouriko is baking, make the syrup.   In a medium sauce pan combine all the ingredients and simmer for about 10 minutes.   When you remove the pie from the oven, pour the syrup over it.  Let it cool and Enjoy !!
