Platsenta: Olive Oil & Walnut Pie with Honey Syrup



For the dough:

  • 700 gr of all-purpose flour,
  • 1 cup of corn flour,
  • 1 ½ cup of olive oil,
  • 4 tbsp of ouzo (or brandy),
  • 2 tbsp of lemon juice,
  • 1/2 tsp of salt,
  • 1 cup of water,
  • about 400 gr of walnuts, chopped, (or almonds)
  • 4 tbsp of sugar,
  • 2 tbsp of cinnamon, ground.

For the syrup:

  • 1 1/2 cups of water,
  • 2 cups of sugar,
  • 1 cup of honey,
  • 2 tbsp of lemon juice.


  1. Prepare the syrup first: Boil water with sugar for 5-6 minutes. Pour into the lemon juice, remove from the heat and add the honey. Stir to melt and set aside.
  2. Mix the flour with the salt into a mixing bowl. Pour in ½ cup of olive oil. Rub the flour with the oil between our palms, until it becomes like crumbs.
  3. Make a hole in the middle and pour into the water, ouzo (or brandy) and the lemon juice.
  4. Knead until it does not stick to hands. If necessary, add a little water or flour. The dough should be smooth and firm.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand for one hour.
  6. Divide the dough into four pieces and roll each piece in a moderate sheet, sprinkling over with corn flour.

  1. Place the first sheet on a greased baking pan. Then strain the sheet as pleated and at irregular intervals. Place all the strained sheets next to each other.


  1. When you have finished all the sheets, warm well the olive oil and pour over the pie (it will make bubbles).
  2. Bake for about 15 minutes at 400 F (200 C) degrees and then turn down to 350 F (170 C), until cooked through and golden brown.
  3. While the pie is still hot pour over with cold syrup. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, mixed with sugar and cinnamon.
