GORGO

A moist, delicious Greek treat. You can alter the sugar depending on your sweet tooth. When adding the milk to the semolina don't get to close, the steam may burn you. Oh, and the smell is awful but the result is delicious. Sprinkle with cinnamon and decorate with walnuts or slivered almonds.

This was delicious!! And pretty healthy if you cut down on the butter. I added about 2 tablespoons of butter and it was still delicious. I also mixed in slivered almonds and raisins. Yummy!!! I will also cut down th sugar by 1/4th cup next time.

the recipe was way to sweet. the desert itself was gorgous but I only used 2 tbs of butter which worked fine and i put 1/4 less of sugar in which was still way to sweet. 3/4 cup rather than 1 & 1/2 cups would have been plenty. you can always add more after. i also put more liquid in, not sure how much though i just added a little at a time untill it was right.

My mom used to make this for us for breakfast when we were young. When I make it, I use half the stated amount of sugar and butter and sometimes add vanilla extract. I also use regular semolina, not semolina flour. Delicious!
