      Spread custard evenly over phyllo.
    6. 6
      Cover with remaining sheets of phyllo, brushing each sheet with the melted butter.
    7. 7
      Trim the edges and fold in carefully to seal the filling.

      Brush the top with melted butter and seal edges with a bit of cold water.

    10. 10
      Meanwhile make the syrup; In a small saucepan combine the sugar, water, lemon juice and sliver of lemon peel and boil for 10 minutes.
    11. 11
      When Galaktoboureko is done and still hot from the oven, spoon syrup over a little at a time until absorbed by the pastry.

      NOTES : This is best made the day before it is needed. It gives the pastry time to absorb the syrup and the filling to become firm.
