Galatopita: Milk Pie - Video Recipe

As for Greek desserts, this is one of my favourites.  It is easy to make and tastes great. I posted the original recipe in March and it has generated numerous email responses from people thanking me for sharing it. I decided to publish it as a video recipe to underline the simplicity of making this pie.



The original posting of this recipe along with the ingredient list can be found here. As mentioned in the video, variations of this recipe can include phyllo pastry as a pie shell, the addition of vanilla extract/flavour to the mix, as well as fruit preserves or other spreads as toppings; cinnamon can also be sprinkled overtop. I sincerely hope you will try this recipe and let me know how it turned out for you.

Sam -

You are getting better and better at those videos! What's going on??
I can't believe that you are not saying one single "uhm" - compared to my videos! Lol.

Keep it going - you have a hand for it (cooking and video)!

Also "Pita" in Romanian means "bread" in some parts of the country.

Thanks!

Great video Sam! Again.

I have never heard of milk pie. It looks interesting. Even as a canvas for so many variations. I like this!

Oh my god! this is wonderful... I've got semolina and milk, and I am so making this.
Bookmarked.

anudivya said...

Sam, just saw the video completely, and had a couple of questions... does the milk have to cool completely before we add the eggs or is just 5 min of cooling time (as mentioned in the video) sufficient?
And also, was the semolina roasted or just raw?

Cathy said...
