I let the pie sheets thaw at room temperature. I unwrapped them and with the tip of a sharp knife I cut the pie sheets into a round cake shape. I took 2 sheets each, greased them with a little sunflower oil and baked them in a tray lined with baking paper until browned. The temperature was around 180 degrees, and the sheets needed 5-7 minutes. I baked 5 rounds of sheets. I let them cool overnight.
For the pistachio paste: I put the cleaned pistachio in a bowl. I put boiled water over it and let it soften for 10-15 minutes. By doing this, the pistachio acquires an intense green color, and the thin skin is easily removed. From water and sugar I made a thick syrup: I put water and sugar in a small kettle and let it boil until the water started to drop and it binds like a syrup. To make pistachio paste I used Breville Blend-Active® Pro. I put in the blender glass the pistachio, the syrup from which I stopped a spoon, the coconut oil. I mixed everything until I got a fine paste. The pasta being too thick, I thinned it with a little rice milk.
For the cream: I put the sunflower oil and the coconut oil in a double-bottomed saucepan. I let it heat up and added flour. I mixed with a pear type flour to dissolve the flour then I poured the hot rice milk, gradually, always mixing with the flour. Let the milk cream boil for 5 minutes, but all the while stirring so that it doesn't stick. At the end I added the orpit sugar syrup and 2 tablespoons of pistachio paste. Let the cream cool, put a food foil on top (not to catch pojghita) then let the cream cool. Mix the whipped cream until it is thick. To the mixed whipped cream, gradually add the pistachio cream.
For assembly: put on a plate a first layer of baked sheets, add cream, evenly, over the pistachio cream slightly crushed pistachio to Breville Blend-Active® Pro, another row of sheets, cream, pistachio… You have to walk carefully with pie sheets not to break. One of them broke, I crushed it in my hands and sprinkled it on top of the last layer. I melted the white chocolate on a steam bath and mixed it with a spoonful of pistachio paste. I glazed the cake, sprinkled coarsely chopped pistachios, left it in the fridge for 3-4 hours to soften the sheets, then portioned and served. May it be useful to you !!

2 traditional Easter recipes for 2 stars
If you ask me what traditional Easter recipes I want to prepare for my guests, you must know that my holiday tables look like American brides: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
In addition to dishes that are never missing, such as red eggs, I try a new recipe and one borrowed from the cuisines of the world. On the other hand, Tom has been diagnosed with type II diabetes and is very careful about what he eats. In addition, both are still recovering from Covid infection19.
After about an hour of browsing the recipe book and the internet, I set the following menu:
Magiritsa - Greek lamb soup
Ingredients • lamb’s head, liver and intestines • 2 large dried onions • Pepper salt • Ο cup of olive oil • 10 sprigs of spring onion • 1 bunch of dill • 1 large lettuce • 1 cup of rice • 2 eggs • 2 lemonsPreparationWash your head well and put it to boil in a pot together with an onion cut in four. Froth and simmer until the meat falls off the bone. Wash the intestines well, boil and cut into small pieces. Separately, boil the liver and cut into small pieces. Remove the head from the water and leave to cool. Strain the juice, discard the onion and refrigerate. When cooled well, remove the fat and discard. Remove all the bones and cut the meat into small pieces. Finely chop the onion, green onion and salad. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add all the onions and cook until they lose their rigidity. Put the chopped intestines, liver and pieces of meat. Add equal parts of soup and water, season with salt and pepper and simmer for an hour and a half. If necessary, top up with hot water. Add the well-washed and strained rice. Add the lettuce and half a bunch of chopped dill and cook for another 15-20 minutes. Beat the eggs with a little water and the juice of a lemon. Slowly add a little hot soup and, when the mixture is hot enough, put it back in the pot and mix well. Leave it on a very low heat for two minutes and serve with chopped dill.
1. Category „something old”
Red eggs, fresh cheese, green onions, radishes, salad and lamb. I was also thinking about some sarmale, but I didn't seem to force my luck. I'm on time and I'm thinking about their health. There will be a lot of carbs and sweets. So I go for the classic lamb steak. I am sure that she will be successful because Rita is of Greek origin and last summer, they both acquired Greek citizenship.
2. Category „something new”
The novelty will be for dessert. I chose wheat with vanilla cream, a recipe with few ingredients, extremely easy to make and delicious.
Thessaloniki - recipe
Ingredients 1 packet of pie sheets (450 grams) 50 grams for syrup: 250 ml water 250 grams sugar 15 ml lemon juice orange peel 1 tablespoon honey 1 cinnamon stick for filling: 400 grams vanilla cream (or cream ) for garnish: raw pistachios, large ground. Preparation For any syrup cake, start with the preparation of the syrup that needs to cool. So, we put in a saucepan the water, the sugar, the lemon juice, the cinnamon stick torn in two and the orange peel cut into large pieces. Bring the syrup to a boil for a few minutes, until the sugar melts, then let it cool. When it has cooled completely, add a tablespoon of honey and mix well until it dissolves. We prepare the vanilla cream and put it in the cold. I cheated a bit and bought a commercial vanilla cream that is made quickly with cold milk. If you have the time and patience, you can make a vanilla cream from eggs, milk, sugar, flour and vanilla essence. Remove the pie sheets from the package and cut them into three lengthwise. We place them on top of each other like in a stack. Take two sheets each, grease them well with melted butter, place them on top of each other, then fold them into a triangle. We cut the triangle in two halves, open it like a cone and fix it with a ball of baking paper. We place the trigons in a tray in which we put baking paper and leave them in the hot oven, over medium heat, for about 5-10 minutes. After removing them from the oven, remove the balls from the baking paper and immerse the hot wheat in the syrup for about 3-5 seconds. Then let them drain on a grill. With the help of a spray or a teaspoon, fill the trigons with vanilla cream. Garnish with coarsely ground pistachios.
3. Category "Something borrowed"
I don't know what it's like in other houses, but I don't miss the lamb soup on the table. If I found it, I would eat lamb and goat every day. But since I only find it at Easter, I don't even think about missing the opportunity. Only this time, it will be Greek lamb soup. I chose her from many traditional Easter recipesbecause it doesn't have many ingredients, it's extraordinarily tasty and doesn't keep you in the kitchen all day.
I will do the "something blue" category with my guests. We will relive memories of the blue of the sky and the sea on the shores of Greece, we will listen to blue-hearted music and we will make fun of those who claim that blue blood flows through their veins.

Chocolate and sea salt tarts
It is said that you do not trust people who do not eat chocolate. It's still hard for me to believe that there are such people. I, for one, eat quite often, with a smile on my face. Desserts with a lot of chocolate are my favorites, and this recipe will better explain what I mean. I also added some coffee and sea salt, to intensify the taste of the tarts. As Charles M. Schulz rightly says: Love is all you need, but a little chocolate, from time to time, does not spoil.
Dough ingredients (4 pieces)
- 130 g of flour
- 65 g of butter
- 1 or
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- a pinch of salt
Method of preparation
I mixed the flour with the cold butter cut into cubes, then I added the egg, the sugar, the milk and a pinch of salt. I quickly kneaded a well-bound dough that I wrapped in plastic wrap and left it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Then I divided the dough into four pieces. On the top sprinkled with flour I put a piece of dough and spread a round sheet with the rolling pin. I placed it in a tart form (10 cm in diameter), lined with a little butter and flour. I pricked the dough with a fork from place to place. I repeated the procedure with the other 3 pieces of dough.
I put the tart forms in the preheated oven at 180˚C, for about 10-12 minutes. I took the tarts out of the oven and let them cool.
Ingredients for the filling
- 100 g of bitter chocolate
- 1 teaspoon finely ground coffee
- 1 teaspoon carob powder
- 100 ml liquid cream for whipping cream (32% fat)
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 10 g sheets of gelatin
- a pinch of sea salt
Preparation of filling
I melted the chocolate in a bain-marie. This technique melts the chocolate by placing the bowl in which it is placed on top of another bowl full of boiling water. Thus, the chocolate melts gradually and evenly. When the chocolate melted, I added the coffee, carob powder, sugar and salt, stirring constantly until I got a homogeneous composition. At the end I added the liquid cream, mixed well and took the pot off the heat.
In a kettle, I soaked the gelatin sheets for 5 minutes in 50 ml of cold water. I then put the gelatin kettle on the fire for 1-2 minutes, until the gelatin has completely dissolved. I let the mixture cool a bit, then incorporated the gelatin into the chocolate cream.
I filled the tarts with hot chocolate cream and left them in the fridge for 3-4 hours. I know, the wait is hard, but I can honestly say it's well worth it. The taste of chocolate is intensified by salt and coffee, a delight.

Cake with strawberry and strawberry cream
The year that has just passed has been very good for us, a year in which we have had many achievements and happy moments, a healthy and peaceful year. I hope this year is at least as good for everyone as the last one. We cooked quite a lot for these holidays and if at Christmas we could not enjoy a traditional meal, well, on New Year's Eve we had a rich meal with a Romanian flavor: caltabosi, toba, Moldovan quisca, belly soup and sarmalute with a lot of smoking, and for dessert this extremely delicious cake composed of a syrupy top with marsala, a delicious strawberry and strawberry mousse flavored with a few tablespoons of alchermes liqueur and powdered from place to place with a tasty pistachio crunch. At the end I dressed the cake in a white coat made of sugar paste adorned with slightly pink stars. I hope you like it and try it because it was really a very fine and fragrant cake.

When it is hot and the sugar has completely melted, take it off the heat and add the gelatin well squeezed from the water in which it was. mix well until the gelatin has dissolved and let the puree cool completely,

To prepare the powdered sugar at home, proceed as follows: mix 300 gr caster sugar with 50 gr commercial powdered sugar and 100 gr corn starch. Mix this mixture in fine fffff powder and use it instead of the powdered sugar you bought. However, I recommend you buy commercial sugar because the paste comes out much finer.
