Mizithropita (Cheese pies)



  • 1 Kg flour
  • ½ glass of cretan olive oil
  • salt
  • 1 kg sour mizithra cheese


Mix all the ingredients for the dough and knead the dough until it is very soft. Let it rise. After it has risen, dip your hands in water and take a small piece of dough (the size of an apricot), make it round, open it slightly in the middle, fill it with a tbsp. of mizithra cheese and close it again. With wet hands place it on a non-stick frying pan with some oil and start pressing it with your hand from the center to the edges of the pan. Fry it until it browns on both sides. Serve with cinnamon and honey.
