This is a recipe that my mum got from a colleague and would make regularly when I was young. Galaktoboureko is a traditional Greek dessert made with a custard in a crispy filo pastry shell. After all these years it is still a family favourite. I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as we do.
i love it!!!! - 07 Sep 2010
Made this last night and it was lovely, thought i'd miss read the recipe as seemed to have loads of custard filling, but it fitted in the tin nicely. I used puff pastry instead of filo rolled quite thin it was like an enormous vanilla slice! Will be making this again. - 02 Aug 2015
I made a big Greek dinner and wanted to do a dessert but was sick of Baklava so I tried this recipe. It was excellent and I highly recommened it. I made a half batch in a 8X8 pan and it still turned out beautifully. Thanks for the great recipe GapGirl! - 17 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
