Galatopita (horis phyllo): A Traditional Greek Milk Pie without Phyllo Dough

 Galatopita (horis phyllo) is a traditional milk pie without phyllo dough.  Galatopita is one of my favorite desserts. It reminds me of my childhood and Easter vacations. A beloved family friend made this delicious dessert with much love and it was kissing us every time we went to see it! As you can see, we still visit our friends at the feasts to enjoy the sweet (and not only)! Recently, she shared with me the secret to taking off this specific recipe for the dairy pie and this is of course the quality of milk! The fresher and more natural, the more unique it will be! Of course, you can make this traditional dessert at any time of the year even at Christmas, as you will find that it is easy to prepare, as long as you follow the instructions!
