Akis’ mom’s cheese pie

Method

For the phyllo

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the flour, the club soda, the sugar, salt, and beat with the hook attachment at high speed, for 5-6 minutes, until there is a thick dough.
  • Ideally, you should refrigerate the dough covered with plastic wrap, for 20-30 minutes, to rest.
  • With a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a 40-50 cm sheet. With a spoon, spread 120 g of the butter over the whole surface of the dough.
  • Cut into 10 pieces and put one on top of the other. Place the phyllo sheets on a plate, wrap the phyllo with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until chilled.

For the filling

  • In a bowl add the grated gruyere cheese, the feta crumbled with your hands, pepper, thyme, the egg, and mix.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Dust your working surface with flour.
  • Cut the dough in half and roll out the first piece. Make sure it is a little bit bigger than the size of the baking pan.
  • Butter a 25x35 cm baking pan and spread the first phyllo sheet by scrunching it. Make sure to crimp the edges all around the pie.
  • Spread the filling over the whole surface of the phyllo. Roll out the second dough piece and cover the filling. Make sure to scrunch its whole surface.
  • Spread 30 g of the butter with a pastry brush, and score into 12 pieces.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes. Let it cool and serve.
