Foodbook #748 lemon pie with syrup


Good morning my friends and happy and healthy week . Delicious lemon pie for today , I really love this dessert
I must thank my favorite chef akis petritzikhs for this recipe


For the syrup

500 g water
700 g granulated sugar

For the pie

5 lemons
450 g phyllo dough sheets
250 g seed oil
250 g granulated sugar
250 g milk, 3,5%
2 vanilla pods
3 eggs
1 heaping teaspoon(s) baking powder
1 heaping teaspoon(s) baking soda

To serve

ice cream, vanillia (optional)


Boil 2 of the 5 lemons in water for 45 minutes.
When ready, cut them in half, remove any seeds and squeeze from excess water.
Beat the boiled lemons in a food processor and set aside in a bowl.
Grate the zest from one of the remaining 3 lemons and squeeze the juice from all three. Set aside until needed.
For the syrup

Boil the water and sugar in a saucepan.
When the sugar melts, remove from heat.
Add the juice from the 3 lemons and set the syrup aside to cool completely.
For the pie

Open the package of phyllo dough and spread the sheets of phyllo one next to the other, without letting them touch one another.
Let them dry out. This could take from 1 to 3 hours. They will be ready when you touch them and they break in to pieces.
Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
When the phyllo has dried out, crush them with your hands to break them up in to pieces as small as possible.
In a bowl, combine the 2 lemons you beat in the food processor along with the vegetable oil, sugar, milk, vanilla and eggs.
Add the baking powder and baking soda. Mix just to combine.
Add the crushed phyllo dough in 5 batches, mixing very well with a spatula after every addition so that the pieces of phyllo don’t stick together.
Grease a 25x30 cm baking pan and dust with flour.
Add the mixture and use a spatula to spread it evenly in the pan.
Bake for 40 minutes or until crunchy and golden.
When ready, remove from oven and immediately pour the cooled syrup over the pie.
Allow it to cool and then refrigerate to chill.
When ready, cut in to pieces and serve with vanilla ice cream.

Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people

My best wishes from Greece
