Gluten Free Greek Savoury Milk Pie – Galatopita
  • Butter is a personal matter. Most people want the food to smell butter and the food with a lot of butter it’s richer in taste. I personally want a lot of butter in desserts in desserts but no at my meals. That’s why I’m giving you the normal amount of butter but for myself I do it with less and works fine.
  • You can add whatever fresh herbs you like such as parsley, oregano, rosemary etc. giving  you my favorites for this recipe. Instead of fresh herbs you also can use dried herbs.
  • Let Galatopita –  Savoury Milk Pie to cool enough before cutting it into pieces and serving it, so to keep its shape
  • The secret of the perfect Milk Pie is that the cream does not thicken too much and the layer that makes in the baking pan must be   thin approx. 1 cm / like pinkie finger.
