A simple dessert with gullac sheets and sweetened milk.


  • 10 gullac sheets
  • 7 cups milk
  • 1 and 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup crumbled walnuts
  • Ground pistachio and pomegranate arils for garnish


  1. Put milk and sugar (and 1 tbsp rosewater if you like) in a pot and heat it until the sugar melts. Stir it occasionally. It shouldn’t be too hot to touch, so let it cool a little. When it gets warm enough, we can start to make our dessert. If you use it hot, your dessert gets soggy.
  2. Pt a gullac sheet in the pan. Wet it with the warm milk. Repeat this with five sheets. After the fifth one, spread the crumbled walnut on it. Then lay the rest five sheets one by one and wet each of them with milk. When you finish with the tenth one, pour the rest of the milk on it. They don’t need to be very good in shape while arranging them in the pan. They will combine when they get wet with milk. After pouring the milk, you will see the sheets are rising, do not touch them. Cover it with stretch film and put it in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  3.  After taking it from refrigerator, cut it in squares or rectangles, garnish and serve.
