Tiropita

Method

You will need a rectangular tray or a large round tin for this recipe. Preheat your oven to 175°C fan forced.

Melt the butter. Butter your baking tray.

Open the fillo flat on the working bench and cover with a damp tea towel.

Crumble your feta into a bowl. Add the ricotta and using your hand mix and blend thoroughly. Add the eggs and cracked pepper. Finally add the milk or yogurt.

Take 2 sheets of fillo and butter them. Use a spoon to sprinkle a generous amount of mixture onto the fillo. Start folding the pastry from the shorter end into a fan. Don’t worry if you get some tears or breaks. Line it up in the tray.

Repeat this process until all of the mixture has been used or the tray is full. If you have any fillo left, butter it and ruffle it on top of the fillo.

Butter the top.

Pour over soda water, allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Bake in preheated oven for 45-60 minutes or until golden brown.
