Ingredients

For The Cream:

  • 1 litter goat milk
  • 140 grams honey
  • 3 large eggs
  • 120 grams fine semolina
  • orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For The Phyllo Base:

  • 4 phyllo pastry sheets
  • 70 grams butter

For Topping:

  • 150 grams honey
  • 15 grams ground cinnamon
  • Optional: chopped walnuts

Instructions

For The Cream:

  • In a cooking pot whisk together the milk and honey.
  • Heat over medium-high heat by whisking constantly.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk the eggs.
  • Once the milk reaches a boiling point, start pouring it into the eggs. Small drops at a time while whisking the eggs constantly.
  • Once you have added at least half the amount of milk into the eggs, transfer back to the pot . Add the orange zest and vanilla extract.
  • Add the semolina and keep whisking until bubbles start to form on the surface. At this point the cream will start to thicken cook for 1-2 minutes more until cream thickens sufficiently. Remove from heat and set aside.

For The Phyllo Base:

  • Preheat oven to 170°C / 338°F.
  • Melt the butter. Grease a 12-inch round baking pan with some of the butter.
  • Take 1 phyllo pastry sheet and cover the bottom of the pan. Grease the phyllo with butter.
  • Add 3 more phyllo sheets the same way. Greasing each one very well and making sure that the bottom of the pan is covered on all sides.
  • Add the cream and spread it evenly with a spoon. Take the excess phyllo that hangs out of the pan and roll it inwards on top of the cream. In order to give a crumbly pie edge look.
  • Bake for aproximately 30 minutes. Until both the phyllo and the cream get a nice golden brown color.

For The Topping:

  • Let pie reach room temperature. Than sprinkle with honey and cinnamon. And walnuts if you like.
  • Cut to 8 pieces and serve!
