The Yummiest Galatopita
Welcome to Greek Lifestyle!
Last year my youngest daughter and I had some fun filming the making of one of our family favourite recipes, Galatopita, a delicious Greek Milk Pie.
Galatopita is a milk pie, thickened with semolina and infused with freshly grated lemon zest and pure vanilla essence. It is prepared on the stove top until thickened, before the eggs are quickly whisked in and mixed well, and then baked in the oven until golden brown and crisp around the edges.
We loved enjoying this treat, and mum was an expert at making it with fresh home laid eggs straight from the hen house, and lemons picked fresh off of our lemon tree. You really can’t get much better than that!
The aromas of vanilla and lemon would permeate the home, and we knew that we were in for a treat. This milk pie can be enjoyed at room temperature just after its cooled down, and its even better the next day if refrigerated overnight.
Galatopita is pudding deliciousness and the best part is scraping the baked on edges off the baking dish to get the crunchy bits!
