  • 10-12 phyllo sheets
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • cup whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1-2 tsp powdered sugar


  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350˚F.
  • Place phyllo sheets on rimmed baking sheet.
  • Use pastry brush to paint inside of 9-inch round metal cake pan lightly with a little bit of melted butter.
  • Use pastry brush to paint phyllo with melted butter, then shape into ruffled spiral. Continue to brush each phyllo sheet with butter, scrunch into strip, and add to cake pan until pan is full.
  • Place cake pan in oven and bake until phyllo is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. (If using a light-colored cake pan, increase baking time to 30 to 35 minutes.)
  • While phyllo bakes, in medium bowl, whisk milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until well combined.
  • When phyllo is ready, use oven mitts to remove cake pan from oven and place on cooling rack (ask an adult for help). Pour milk mixture evenly over phyllo in cake pan.
  • Use oven mitts to return cake pan to oven and bake until filling is set and no longer jiggles when pan is gently shaken, 20 minutes.
  • Use oven mitts to remove cake pan from oven and place on cooling rack. Let pie cool on rack for 30 minutes.
  • Dust pie with confectioners’ sugar. Slice pie into wedges and serve warm.
