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.

Serve hot.

Makes about 4 dozen.
