Copenhagen – Greek syrupy phyllo and almond dessert


For the syrup

  • In a pot, add the water, sugar, cinnamon stick, and boil for 5 minutes.
  • Add the lemon juice and honey, 1 minute before you remove the pot from the heat, and let the mixture cool.

For the base

  • Preheat the oven to 200ο C (392ο F) set to fan.
  • Butter a 25x32 cm baking pan.
  • Add all of the ingredients for the base into a bowl, wear gloves, and crumble the mixture’s ingredients with your hands.
  • Pour the mixture into the buttered baking pan and press it lightly with your hand in order to spread it evenly.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set it aside to cool.
  • Lower the oven’s temperature to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.

For the filling

  • Add the eggs into the mixer and beat them with the whisk attachment at high speed until they turn white and fluffy.
  • In a bowl, mix all of the remaining ingredients of the filling, and as soon as they are homogenized, add them into the egg mixture.
  • Mix lightly with a spatula so that the 2 mixtures are well combined.

To assemble

  • Pour the filling’s mixture into the baking pan, over the baked base that has been cooled, and make sure that it covers the whole surface.
  • Take the phyllo dough sheets and cut them in half, vertically, to get 10 sheets.
  • Take one phyllo piece, place it over the filling, drizzle with the butter, and follow the same process until there are no more sheets.
  • Fold, backwards, the phyllo sheet pieces that are slightly sticking out.
  • Score the phyllo dough sheets by shaping diamonds, and bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes.

To serve

  • Remove the dessert from the oven and, while it is hot, slowly pour the cold syrup with a ladle. Let it cool and absorb the syrup well.
  • Cut into pieces and serve.
