Greek cheese pies with mizithra and honey


For the dough

  • Add all of the ingredients in a large, plastic bowl except for the flour.
  • Mix them well with a spoon and then, slowly add the flour. Firstly mix with a spoon and then with your hands, until you get a soft dough that doesn’t stick.
  • Add it to the bowl, cover it with a towel, and set it onto the counter or refrigerate for one hour to rest.

For the filling

  • Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl, except for the milk. You want to get a malleable filling.
  • In case the mizithra is a bit dry, add the milk little by little, until you get the desired consistency.

To assemble

  • With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to a 1-2 mm sheet, by dusting with flour to prevent it from sticking.
  • With a cookie cutter or a glass, cut round discs of 7-8 cm diameter.
  • Divide the filling to the discs with a small spoon, and fold them in half to create half-moons.
  • With a fork, press the join well so that the cheese pies will not open up while being fried.
  • In case that the dough does not stick to the join, spread with a little water and press with the fork.
  • Add the oil into a large frying pan, let it get very hot, and fry for 2 minutes on each side until they turn nicely golden.
  • Drain them onto kitchen paper and serve them with honey.
