Cheese Pie Twister
Cheese Pie Twister
Method
  • In a mixer, add all of the ingredients for the dough.
  • Beat with the hook attachment until the dough forms and starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl. The amount of water added will differ according to the type of flour used. Begin with 200 g of water and add the rest only if needed.
  • When ready, cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • Grate the feta and gruyere into a bowl.
  • Add the finely chopped mint and pepper. Mix and set aside.
  • When the dough has rested, divide it into 6 pieces and shape into balls.
  • Dust your working surface with some flour and roll out one ball of dough into a thin sheet. Don’t worry if it rips since you will be creating pleats in the dough.
  • Use a pastry brush to drizzle 1/6 of the olive oil over the sheet of dough.
  • Add 1/6 of the cheese filling in various places over the surface.
  • Gently push the dough to create pleats and then twist it to create a swirl.
  • Brush a 30 cm round baking pan with olive oil and place it in the center of the pan.
  • For the remaining 5 balls of dough, roll them out, add the filling just as before, create pleats and then wrap each one around the first cheese pie until the pan has filled. You should have a huge spiral.
  • You want the pleats to be loose, not tight so that the pie can bake properly. You may need to cover it with aluminum foil while baking if it turns golden too soon.
  • Drizzle any remaining olive oil over the surface.
  • Bake for about 1 ½ hours, until golden and crunchy.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • Cut into pieces and serve.
