Introduction: Greek Style Cheese Pies
These are a traditional holiday treat my family makes. They are crispy, cheesy, savory and delicious! Easy to make and sure to please you and your guests.
Step 1: Ingredients and Roll Up
You will need: 12 sheets of phyllo 1 cup feta 1 cup ricotta 1 tsp dill 1 tsp dried mint ½ tsp white pepper 1 egg 1 stick of butter melted, clarified is best. You can use part butter and part olive oil if you prefer. Method: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine feta, ricotta, dill, mint, pepper, and egg. Working quickly, brush sheet of phyllo with butter, top with another sheet of phyllo, brush with butter, and place a few tablespoons of cheese filling on the bottom right corner of phyllo
Step 2: Fold Like a Flag, and Don't Forget the Butter!
Fold pastry over, brush with butter, and fold into triangle, kinda like folding a flag.
Step 3: Bake
Repeat folding until you finish all six. Brush with a bit more butter, and bake on a sheet pan for 20 minutes or until golden.
Step 4: Eat!
They are ready to serve! Eat hot or at room temp, a drizzle of honey is also a delicious addition!
