- Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
- Melt 100 g of butter in the microwave or in a saucepan and brush a 25x35 cm baking dish with some of it.
- Using both hands “pull apart” the shredded phyllo dough so that it can become nice and fluffy.
- Spread half of it evenly in the ovenproof dish.
- Grate the feta, gruyere and country cheese in to a bowl. Mix with a spoon.
- Spread over the phyllo dough, leaving a 1-2 cm border all around.
- Cover with the remaining shredded phyllo dough and press down on it with the palm of your hand so that it can “sit comfortably” in the dish.
- Press down all around the border with your fingers so that both the top and bottom of the phyllo stick together so that the cheese filling doesn’t spill out when it melts while baking.
- In a bowl, whisk the heavy cream, eggs, the rest of the melted butter and freshly ground pepper until completely combined.
- Pour over the cheese pie evenly.
- Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes.
- Then, remove foil and lower temperature to 190* C (370* F) Fan.
- Bake for another 30 minutes, until golden and crunchy.
- When ready, remove from oven and allow it to cool before cutting into pieces and serving.
