There are so many different types of cheese
pies in Greece.Served sweet and savoury, they are simple to
make and good for a snack or dessert. In this recipe I have used a readily
available cheese, feta, combined with cream cheese to dilute and soften its
salty flavour, as fresh soft Greek cheeses are not always easy to find.
Makes one 22 cm diameter pie.
50 g unsalted butter
100 g cream cheese
2 tablespoons caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
10 sheets filo pastry
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a saucepan, melt butter and set aside.
To prepare the filling; crumble the feta
into a bowl and mix in the cream cheese and sugar.Add the beaten eggs and mix together. It
will be lumpy but don’t over mix.
To make the pie; Liberally brush a 22cm pie
dish with melted butter. Layer nine filo pastry sheets, one at a time and
buttering between each one, with the edges hanging over the pie rim. Pour the
filling into the shell. Fold the overlapping pastry sheet over the filling and
into the middle, and brush each roughly with butter, to encase the filling.
Butter one last pastry sheet and fold in half. Lay this one neatly on top and
tuck in the edges for a tidy finish. Brush the top with butter and bake on a
low shelf in the oven, at 180 C for 30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked
Remove from the oven and cut into portions. Serve each drizzled with honey
Honey syrup – heat ½ cup honey and a
squeeze of lemon in a saucepan until honey is liquefied. Keep it warm and serve
with pie above.
