Final Thoughts

Greek desserts vary as much as the islands that created them. Some are creamy, some are lemony and many are full of syrup.

Hopefully, this list gives you the culinary inspiration to bake something new or revisit an old favorite.

Whatever you make, don’t forget, the important thing is that you enjoy it once it’s out of the oven.
