Tiropita (Greek Cheese Pie)

Ingredients

1/2 tablespoon oregano
1 teaspoon dried mint
12 ounces of feta, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup of parmasean
16 ounces of ricotta
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
1 stick of butter
1 box of phyllo

Preparation

1
In a standing mixer (or with an egg beater), mix together all of the ingredients except for the phyllo and butter until well incorporated.
2
Grease a 13 x 9 in baking pan.
3
Working carefully and quickly, lay out a sheet of phyllo and butter with a pastry brush. Keep on alternating melted butter and phyllo until you have laid down half of the phyllo.
4
Pour the cheese mixture on top of the phyllo.
5
Top with alternating layers of phyllo and butter.
6
Once you’ve finished with all of the sheets, cut the pie into squares before baking.
7
Place in the oven and bake on 350° for 45-50 minutes. If the top starts to get too brown, cover with foil for the remainder of the cooking time.
8
Let sit for around 5 minutes before cutting. Serve.

 



About

If you’re planning a party of sorts, consider making this tiropita with a spinach pie as an accompaniment and a greek salad to tie the whole thing together. It’s a whole lot of buttery goodness without any fuss. And we all know that fusses are way overrated.
