Pumpkin Filled Pastry (Kabakli Borek)

3 Turkish pastry leaves (yufka)
1 ½ cups sugar
300-350 grams pumpkin, shredded
½ cup walnuts, crushed (optional)
¼ cups milk
2-3 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
 
Grease a wide oven tray and place a pastry leave covering the bottom with no overlapping. Try to make the pastry as flat as possible. If using cinnamon, mix sugar with cinnamon. Spread about half of the shredded pumpkin over the pastry and do the same with sugar. If desired add crushed walnuts for more flavor. Then, cover it with another pastry leaf making a flat layer. Continue with pumpkin, sugar and walnuts. If your tray is not large enough to accommodate all the pastry leaf, you may always tear the pastry leaf to fit the tray and use the torn parts for making another layer. Finally, cover the top with the last pastry leaf (yufka). Mix milk and canola oil and spread it all over the top evenly. Sprinkle with some sugar for a crispy top.
Bake the Pumpkin Borek in the preheated 400 F (200 C) oven for about 30-40 minutes or until the top gets light brown. Slice it into squares and serve either hot or cold.
ENJOY
