Greek Sweets

Milk Pie dusted with cinnamon.

This is a delicious, filling, and popular Greek sweet.
It couldn’t be easier to make, and it always welcomes a crowd!

Try this out sometime. Recipe:

5 cups milk (at least 2% but whole is preferred)
1 cup sugar
1 cup semolina (fine)
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs, beaten
1-2 tsp. vanilla
Puff pastry or phyllo optional for bottom crust

Preheat oven to 350. Heat milk over heavy bottom saucepan on medium heat, adding butter until melted and simmering. Add sugar and semolina, stirring constantly with whisk until dissolved completely and thickens. Remove from heat, whisk for a few minutes to slightly cool, and then continually stream in eggs and vanilla while continuing to stir quickly.

Butter cake pan and then pour creme evenly, gently shaking from side to side if needed. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until golden brown on top and the middle is set. Remove and cool on rack for 15-20 minutes. Cut, serve generously sprinkled with cinnamon and an ice cold glass of milk.

Think of it this way, you will definitely meet your calcium requirements for the day!
