Galaktoboureko (Greek: γαλακτομπούρεκο) is a Greek dessert of semolina custard baked in filo. The name means "milk burek". 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.
The Turkish laz böreği is similar, but is made with a type of pudding called muhallebi instead of semolina custard. It is popular in Rize and Artvin provinces in the Black Sea Region, home of many Laz people.
