Greek custard pie with peanut butter – Bougatsa


  • Preheat the oven to 200oC (390o F) set to fan.
  • Place a saucepan over medium heat and melt the butter.
  • Butter a 30x35 cm baking pan well with a pastry brush.
  • Spread 1 phyllo sheet into the pan, lightly butter it, cover with a second phyllo sheet, and lightly butter this one as well. 
  • Butter the rest of the phyllo sheets, crinkle them, and place them into the pan one next to the other (accordion-like), making sure not to press them a lot and lose their volume. 
  • If there is any leftover melted butter, drizzle it over the phyllo. 
  • Place the baking pan on the highest rack in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the phyllo is crispy and nicely golden. 

For the cream

  • In a bowl add the eggs, the yolks, the granulated sugar, and the peanut butter. 
  • Whisk very well until the sugar is dissolved and there is a uniform mixture.
  • Add the vanilla extract, the baking powder, the milk, the heavy cream, and whisk well. 
  • Transfer the cream to a jug in order to pour it easily into the pan.

To assemble

  • Remove the baking pan from the oven, pour the cream over the phyllo, and sprinkle with the dark brown soft sugar.
  • Lower the oven’s temperature to 180oC (350o F) set to fan.
  • Put the baking pan back into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven and set it aside to cool for a while.
  • Sprinkle with the icing sugar, the cinnamon, and the coarsely chopped peanuts.
  • Cut into pieces and serve.
