Galaktoboureko, like baklava, is another classic Greek dessert, hailing from Macedonia. "Gala" means milk in Greek, and "boureko" translates to stuffed, which aptly describes these crisp phyllo pastries filled with creamy milk custard.
Phyllo comes in different thicknesses; if possible, use extra-thin. Greeks often use Cream of Wheat as a thickener.

Does one not know that Macedonia and Greece a two different countries?!?! Neither country can understand not one word from one to teh other.....
How is this GALA 'KAKA' BUREKO a 'greek dessert hailing from Macedonia'?? I am a full blown Macedonian and I can happily say we have never made nor tried this dessert in our community or in our country for that! Please get your facts right and correct them. This is nothing but politics, let me guess some confused GREEK wrote the recipe!?!?!?
