calling all bakers - phyllo milk pie?!

I really want to give this a try but have never heard of such a thing. Anyone made a phyllo custard tart or pie? How'd it go?

    I think galaktoborueko has a thick custard layer and it doesn't look like this pie has the same. I found a similar version from Martha Stewart (but have never used a MS recipe so don't know how well they work)


    Guess I'll just have to give it a go and see what happens (and have a back up plan in mind!)

      It sounds kind of like a galactoboureko.

        That was my first thought as well. Isn't "milk pie" just a literal English translation of "galactoboureko"?

        ETA: I hasten to add that it does look a bit different than the traditional, but seems like a similar idea.

        This sounds like a phyllo version of the Impossible Pie, since the phyllo ends up on top, not as a crust. I was picturing more of a custard baked in a phyllo shell.

          it doesn't "wind up on top." it's pre-baked before the custard is added.

          this seems like a good recipe for those who are phyllo-phobic.

          whenever i work with it, i spray it with pam, instead of brushing with butter. makes for a much less heavy finished product.

          personally, i wouldn't like raisins in a custard, but otherwise this sounds good!
