Tyropitakia-Cheese Pies

  • Preparation Time90 mins
  • Cooking Time20 mins
  • Serves15
  • DifficultyMedium
1/2 pound feta, crumbled
1/2 pound ricotta
1/2 cup kasseri (a hard sheep's milk cheese), grated
1/4 pound cream cheese
1/2 pound butter, melted
Chopped parsley to taste
Grated nutmeg, to taste
2 eggs, well beaten
1 package filo pastry
White pepper, to taste

To make the filling, combine the all the cheese together with the parsley, nutmeg, pepper, and eggs. Mix well and set aside for 1 hour, refrigerated. Preheat the oven to 175°C. Pull filo dough from the refrigerator and unroll. Make sure to keep the dough covered at all times while using, because it dries out quickly.

Cut the filo into 4 strips. (If you want to make smaller tyropitakia, cut into 6 strips.) One strip at a time, brush with the melted butter and place a small dollop of cheese mix in the middle of the top of the strip. Folding the filo is like folding a flag, fold the right corner to the left to form a right angle and then upward. Continue folding at right angles until you reach the top and have a triangle.

Place the triangles on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown on each side.
