Greek milk pie from Mani


For the phyllo dough

  • Place a frying pan over low heat and add the butter. Let it melt. Be careful not to burn it.
  • In a bowl add the flour, the salt, the melted butter, the water, and mix with a spoon. Once the dough starts shaping, knead well with your hands for 4-5 minutes.
  • Wrap it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 1 hour to rest.

For the cream

  • In a pot add the milk, the flour, the cinnamon, the vanilla powder, and transfer over low heat. Whisk until the mixture is warm and thickened.
  • Remove from the heat and add the butter. Whisk until the butter melts. Set aside for 5 minutes until the temperature drops.
  • Add the eggs, the salt, and whisk well. Set the cream aside.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 170ο C (340ο F) set to fan.
  • In a bowl add the walnuts, the sugar, the cinnamon, and mix. Set aside.
  • Cut the dough into 3 pieces. Use a rolling pin to roll out each piece into a 40 cm sheet. If the dough is sticky, dust it with some flour.
  • Spread some butter in a 30 cm baking pan and add one of the phyllo sheets. 
  • Add half of the walnuts and drizzle with butter. Cover with another phyllo sheet, spread the remaining walnuts, and drizzle with butter.
  • Cover with the third phyllo sheet, drizzle with the rest of the butter, and add the whole filling.
  • Turn the edges of the phyllo inwards and sprinkle with the sugar.
  • Bake for 1 hour. Remove and let it cool.
