PORTOKALOPITA | ORANGE PIE
My cousin shared her Cretan recipe with me (referred to as "glasso" in Crete, instead of portokalopita) during our last visit. I particularly love making it in the winter when citrus is at it's peak. Flaky phyllo dough serves as the "flour" in this recipe to bind and lends a layered, spongy texture to hold the syrup. Enjoy on it's own or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
crushed phyllo flakes / orange juice and zest / greek yogurt / e.v. greek olive oil / vanilla / egg / salt / baking powder & soda / honey syrup
