Marvelous Feta cheese pies with honey!!!
Hello my friends!
Today I’m going tell you how to make a famous Greek starter, Feta cheese pie with handmade short crust pastry. Now that I am thinking, it’s not only a tasteful starter but an all-day, any course bite. Alexis at least, eats them all day long ;-)
Let’s begin with the ingredients (of course no need to mention, all ingredients are organic)
For the pastry
225g cow yogurt (Usually for the short crust pastry people use butter but I prefer yogurt. It’s much healthier)
½ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
500 g Self-Raising Flour
For the filling
300g Feta cheese
Optional pepper (If you like spicy)
1egg for egg-painting
- First we make the pastry. Put all ingredients in a bowl, except the flour. Stir until the mix looks like cream. Then pour the flour slowly into the bowl and stir. It’s important to pour the flour slowly in order not to make it stick. When the mixture is ready, leave it to rest. Don’t forget to cover the bowl with a towel. Leave it resting for half an hour.
- Now let’s prepare the filling. Shatter the Feta cheese into a bowl and mix it with the eggs. Stir for a little while in order for the egg to mix with the cheese.
- Let’s marry the pastry and the filling. Take small pieces of the pastry and mold them like small ping pong balls. Then press them with your palm in order to make a small round patty. Take a tea spoon and fill the middle of the patty with the filling. Close the patty in half to form a small half-moon pie. To ensure the patty will stay closed, press the edges smooth with a fork.
- Take a baking pan and cover the bottom with a wax paper. Put inside the small pies and egg-paint them on the top. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 30 minutes.
The one million dollar tip:
Pour the cheese pies with honey before serving to your guests. They will be amazed.
