Tiropitakia (cheese pastries) are the must-have Greek appetizer. Everybody loves them and they are very easy to make.
I haven’t gone to one Greek household where I never have been served “warm” tiropites!
Here’s an easy Greek recipe to try, Enjoy!
Crumble or mash the feta cheese with a fork. Add the grated cheese, parsley, eggs and pepper.
Cut Phyllo pastry sheets in strips about 2×12 inches. Stack them one on top of the other to prevent from drying.
Brush each strip with melted butter, put one teaspoon of the filling on one end of a strip and fold over one corner to make a triangle.
Continue folding pastry strip from side to side in the shape of a triangle until the entire pastry strip covers the filling.
Proceed in this manner with pastry strips and filling until all are used.
Put “tiropitakia” on a buttered baking sheet, brush with melted butter and bake in a moderate oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes about 4 dozen.
