Greek Cheese Pie – Tiropita.

A hot day today, but I love to work with pastry, particularly water pastry.  The pastry is a simple one, it is made out of flour, oil, salt and warm water. The pie is an inspiration from my Greek friend, Sophie, she is a very good cook, and she taught me how to cook Greek cooking.

Today I cooked tiropita as I had the feta cheese on hand,  I promised her to cook a Greek pie one day, so she will assess me whether I do the right thing or not.

What you need for the tiropita pie are Feta cheese, pastry ( philo pastry you could by from the shop) and eggs.  Mix 250 gr Dodoni Feta cheese (crumbled) with three eggs, add a pinch of salt.  Get five sheets of philo pastry and buttered in between , place them on a tin.  Pour the cheese mixture on it, and cover with another five sheets of the  pastry which are buttered in between as well.  Brush with melted butter on top.  Bake in a preheated oven for 22 minutes, until the pastry is golden.

While the oven was going I baked herb bread loaf, it was such a productive day.
Other Greek pies that I baked in the past were Spinach pie (spanakopita) and Leek pie (prasopita).  My family love all the pies.

The Greek cheese pie – Tiropita, I served it with a touch of Morocco by dusting the pastry with icing powder sugar and cinnamon.  It’s so delicious and the pastry was so crisp and light.
I am so happy.   It Was Such A Beautiful Offering.
