Make This!

Tiropita! I enjoyed this tasty cheese pie so much at this past weekend's Greek festival, that I had to find a recipe and make it on my own. Every recipe I found couldnt' emphasize enough that when working with fillo dough - you must respect it - even be afraid of it. I was not going to let that keep me from my tiropita. I made a decision that I would not be afraid of the fillo dough!

Fillo sheets


Feta, eggs, pepper & parsley.
Shaping the tiropita. I cut a sheet of 8.5x11 paper in half length-wise & practiced making triangles before I tackled the fillo dough. It worked and I was able to form the fillo triangles.

Finished product.
These were soooooo goooood! Almost as good as the ones I had on Saturday. Now that I have half a package of fillo left, I will try bougatsa next. That is a custard filled pastry. I won't tackle baklava as I love Pop-a-Bak's! They are the BEST I have EVER had! They are sold at the Vancouver Farmer's Market. If you haven't tried Elayne's baklava - you are missing out! Elayne is from Camas and you can order directly from her as well.
The tiropita recipe I found here.
