Tiropitas (Greek Cheese Pastry)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Appetizers, Greek

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Feta cheese
  • 3/4 lb Small curd cottage cheese
  • 1/4 c Chopped chives or parsley
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 lb Butter; melted
  • 1 lb Filo dough


Mix everything but the butter and dough together. Cut the dough into 4 or 5
even sets of strips and cover them while you work with wax paper and a
moist dish towel.

Lay out one strip, brush lightly with butter, and repeat with a second
layer. Put a teaspoon of filling at one end, and fold a corner over the
filling. Starting with this initial triangle, fold the dough up like a flag
until you have a little turnover. Repeat for the rest of the dough and
filling, laying them out on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350ø for 20 minutes until brown.

WARNING: when these come out of the oven, the filling remains very hot for
quite a while after the tiropitas themselves are cool enough to handle.
Watch out, if you don't want to see your guests in court seeking damages
for seared palates.

Yields: 50 to 60

NOTES : Flaky cheese triangles.
