Everyone loves a good tyropita, that is a feta cheese pie. Tyropitakia are individual cheese pies served at parties, pic nics etc as snacks. This recipe is the easiet one we’ve come across. It involves a tiny bit of kneading but worry not, it is very very simple to pull off.
These are best eaten on the day you make them, preferably warm, but they definitely keep for a couple of days. Our feta cheese pies are ideal as a treat for kids, as a taster for guests and much more. Also great breakfast and brunch food.
You can coat the pies with the second egg yolk – beat it lightly first- but the adults in our house prefer them coat-free for health and dietary reasons. They still taste delicious but don’t look as shiny as they otherwise would. Also this recipes call for corn oil, rather than our usual olive oil.
Go on, give then a try, you know you want to!
