Tiropitas (Greek Cheese Pastry)


Try something different for your game day appetizers this year with Tiropitas, a Greek cheese pastry.

Cook time: 20 minutes

  • 1/4 lb feta cheese
  • 3/8 lb small curd cottage cheese
  • 1/8 cup chopped chives or parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 lb butter, melted
  • 1/2 lb phyllo dough

Mix all ingredients except the butter and dough. Cut the dough into 4 or 5 even sets of strips and cover with wax paper and a moist dish towel while you work.

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 350°F for 20 minutes until brown.
