Stir in warm milk alternately with the comstarch and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture almost reaches a boil.
Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream and vanilla.

Pour cream mixture into pan and top with remaining sheets of phyllo, buttering each evenly.
With a sharp knife cut top pastry into 4 or 5 strips.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden.
Remove from oven and pour cool syrup over the hot galatoboureko.
