A delicious, and authentic, refreshing pie for the hot summer months. It can be served with whipped or ice cream if you wish. Mmmm! Found on Authentic Greek Food: Greek food as it's cooked in Greece. Very easy!

Directions

  1. Leave the sheets of filo pastry out, separated and uncovered, to dry for a few hours.
  2. Crumble the sheets of filo.
  3. Put the olive oil and eggs in a mixing bowl and whisk well with a metal whisker.
  4. Add the yoghurt and baking powder and continue whisking until you have a smooth cream.
  5. Add the crumbled filo pastry and mix in well with your hands.
  6. Put in an oven dish and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes until it turns a golden colour.
  7. In the meantime, prepare the syrup – boil the syrup ingredients in a pan for 5 minutes.
  8. After removing the pie, once it is cold, cut into portions and spread the warm syrup on top.
