For the shredded phyllo

  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320 ο F) set to fan.
  • Untangle the shredded phyllo very well, put it into a buttered 30x40 cm baking pan and drizzle with the butter.
  • Bake for 60 minutes.
  • Remove and while it is still hot, pour over the cold syrup. Set aside for 1 hour until the whole syrup is absorbed.
  • As soon as it is cooled down, cut the shredded phyllo into 3 strips.


For the ice cream

  • In a mortar and pestle add the mastic, the mahlab, and crush them well until powdered.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the mastic and the mahlab, heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, salt, and beat with the whisk attachment at medium speed for 3-4 minutes, until the mixture thickens and looks like whipped cream. Transfer into a pastry bag and set aside.
  • Line a 10x35 cm loaf tin with plastic wrap.
  • Spread 1/3 of the ice cream’s mixture and then, spread one of the shredded phyllo strips to make a layer.
  • Cover with another 1/3 of the ice cream and then, make a layer with one more shredded phyllo strip.
  • Spread the remaining ice cream, cover with the plastic wrap, and press lightly with your hands to spread the mixture over the whole surface of the loaf tin.
  • Freeze for 4-5 hours to chill the ice cream well.
  • Take the ice cream out of the loaf tin, cut into pieces, and serve with the remaining shredded phyllo and pistachios.
