Galaktoboureko (Greek: γαλακτομπούρεκο) is a Greek dessert of semolina custard in filo.[2] The name means "milk börek". It may be made in a pan, with filo layered on top and underneath and cut into square portions, or rolled into individual servings (often approximately 10 cm (4 in) long). It is served or coated with a clear, sweet syrup. The custard may be flavored with lemon, orange, or rose.

Unlike mille-feuille, which it otherwise resembles, the custard is baked with the pastry,[3] not added afterwards.

In Turkey, it is known as "Laz böreği"[4][5]
