Galaktoboureko Greek Custard Phyllo Dessert Recipe

Galaktoboureko Greek Custard Phyllo Desert Recipe How To Make Galaktoboureko. The Greek Kitchen at my friends house taught me how to make this custard and phyllo rolls, For many years I always called it a different name, but have now found out its true identity of this pastry recipe. The only part that may take some time is making the custard, and individually rapping each roll. But can be done in less than 30 minutes, besides the baking time. The Greek Custard, is basically semolina based and is wonderful. The cinnamon at the end is optional, but really gives it a lot of flavor. We tend to rush and eat it when its warm, but its most delicious when is cold. Phyllo dessert are widely popular in many baklava varieties, and perhaps this recipe is a relative of the baklava as it has the basics of many baklava ingredients. Phyllo dough is so diverse, you can use it in a countless amount of recipes, and this is another recipe using Phyllo dough. Make a batch of these Galaktoboureko Greek Custard Phyllo Desserts Pastry Recipe and take it as a gift! But make plenty as it will go fast! Its that good!

Great recipe, my favorite dessert. Very clear instructions, thank you.

christinapapou1981 says:

the cream looks way too thick and you have to let the milk become warm before you add the semolina. also you must incorporate the eggs while its still cooking and then turn off the heat. not a very good depiction of the real way of making galaktobouriko.

Deb Polenz says:

This looks very good, but wondering how long you can save them for or can you freeze them if left over? I doubt I will get an answer as no other questions where answered here. As for the DUCK EGG question, are you nuts, you can clearly see she has regular chicken eggs, don’t you think she would of said duck eggs if she had used them? arg.
