You can buy these at every corner bakery in Greece and there are other, smaller shops that specialize in this pastry as well, so we dont actually have to make our own. This recipe is from when I lived in Canada and HAD to have one! This looks like a long recipe, but it really isnt. I just gave very detailed instructions on how to fold the pastry up properly to enclose the custard filling.
