  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Farina
  • 4 Eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Make filling: scald milk in a large saucepan

frothy and lemon-colored. Slowly add farina mixture, stirring constantly.
Stir in orange peel and vanilla. Set aside to cool.

Line a 9x12-inch baking pan with a sheet of phyllo, allowing some to
overhang on one side. Brush with butter. Layer 4 more sheets of phyllo,
buttering each one, until bottom and sides of pan are comp letely covered
and 2 to 3 inches of phyllo overhang edges on all sides. Pour in cooled
custard. Cover with a sheet of phyllo cut to fit top of pan and brush with
butter. Layer 4 more buttered sheets of phyllo on top and fold in overhang
to seal custard inside. With tip of a very sharp knife score top phyllo
sheets into square or diamond shapes, taking care not to cut into custard
layer. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until crisp. Cool 5 minutes on a rack.

Meanwhile make syrup: In a small saucepan combine sugar, water, cinnamon
stick, cloves and peel. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar dissolves.
Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add Grand Marnier and
let cool. When syrup is lukewarm, pour over warm pastry. Let cool
thoroughly to room temperature before cutting and serving.
