What Is Milopita?

Milopita is a traditional Greek apple pie dessert. There are many different recipes for this pastry, but this particular one is my own. It can be prepared quickly, which is good because I guarantee it will disappear fast!

This dessert pairs perfectly with yogurt or ice cream. In Greece, many people enjoy eating milopita for breakfast, as well.
