Traditional Greek Cheese Pies

Traditional Greek Cheese Pies


  • Combine all of the ingredients for the dough into the mixers bowl. Beat with the hook attachment until the dough starts to pull back from the sides of the bowl and becomes smooth and elastic. Let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • In the meantime, prepare the filling. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Combine the cheeses, aromatics and pepper in a bowl. Add the melted butter.
  • Mix together with a spatula.
  • When the dough has rested for 30 minutes, divide equally into 4-5 pieces.
  • Roll each piece of dough out on a floured working surface. Use the rolling pin to roll them out to a 20 cm circular shaped sheet.
  • Brush the edges of the sheet with butter or with some water. Put some of the filling onto the lower part.
  • Create a roll and then create a spiral with the roll. Tuck the edge of the spiral underneath so that it stays in place.
  • Transfer to a large round (33 cm) baking pan. Brush with some olive oil and line with a sheet of parchment paper. Repeat with remaining circular sheets of dough.
  • Brush some milk onto the pies. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake for 1 hour until golden brown and crunchy.
