Easy sweet milk phyllo pie (Patsavouropita)




Another easy, creamy dessert is coming at your way and you have to try and make it! Believe me it's very easy and it will satisfy your sweet tooth.. It's an easy modern version of the traditional Galaktompoureko which is one of the most famous desserts in Greece.
So.. the next time you'll visit your grocery store grab a package of phyllo pastry. I'm sure you have all the other ingredients that are needed available at your home..

Ingredients

1 package phyllo pastry thawed
250 g butter
750 ml milk (3 cups)
8 - 10 tablespoons sugar
Zest of 1 orange
A pinch of salt
1 cinnamon stick
Confectioners sugar and ground cinnamon

How to make

Using a saucepan melt the butter, and using a brush grease really good a baking pan.
Brush with butter a phyllo sheet and crease it with your hands. Preheat oven to 380 degrees.


Move the creased phyllo in the baking pan and continue brushing with butter the other sheets and place them in the pan.



When all the leaves are in the pan, bake the pie for 20 minutes to brown and crisp the phyllo.
Place a saucepan over medium heat, add the milk, sugar, zest and cinnamon stick. Let it simmer for 10 minutes (we don't want to boil the mixture), stirring occasionally.
After the 20 minutes of baking the phyllo, remove the pan and pour lugs of the milk mixture over the phyllo pastry.


Return the pan in the oven and bake 25 minutes more.
When it's ready, remove from the oven and sift the confectioners sugar and ground cinnamon
return to the oven and continue baking for 5 minutes more (optional).


Let it cool a bit before serving.

Enjoy!!!

  7. Very interesting type of pie, looks like those flaky crust is a good match to the creamy milk, like oreos dipped in a glass of milk

  8. That's a great looking dessert. I've been to quite a few Greek restaurants and none have been serving this or else I would have tried it. Looks great! I imagine you have to be pretty skilled with the filo pastry though.

  15. Such an unusual, yet simple and delicious phyllo pie. I have never seen it in any Greek restaurants.
    We're going to the Greek Festival this evening, and they make the most amazing Baklava there. I will mention to them about your delicious Greek Pie:DDD

    1. I hope you had a great time at the Greek Festival Elisabeth, this is a modern greek recipe, it is likely possible that Greeks who live elsewhere for many years, that they dont know about it..

    1. Thank you for visiting Karen, it's a modern version of a classic dessert and its lighter and really easy to make. I dont think that there's a chance to see it in a Greek restaurant especially to one that it's abroad..

  18. This recipe looks tasty and easy to make! I can not wait to make it myself. I have never worked with phyllo dough I always thought it was so vulnerable and that a chaotic person like myself would tear it up. I know now that I am mistaken, with this lovely recipe I can make a lovely looking and I bet lovely tasty phyllo dough pie. Thank you for sharing.
    You have a wonderful blog!
