Cheese Pies Without Pastry
Tiropita Horis Fillo

Cheese pies without pastry is an easy appetizer recipe to make, doing away with the hassle of making pastry, and it still tastes great. These are ideal to serve as party food, or as a daytime snack. Ideal as a lunchbox alternative to sandwiches for children.


1 teacup margarine/butter
3 teacups plain flour
3/4 teacup grated kefalotiri cheese (or any other hard cheese)
1 egg, separated
1 level teaspoon salt
1 level teaspoon baking powder


Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl and mix together well.

Add the cheese, butter and 1 egg yolk. Mix in together well to make a dough.

You can make whatever shapes you like, though traditionally cheese pies are made in a half moon shape. Beat the egg white a little and then brush a little of this over them.

Bake in a medium oven, about 325-350F, 160-180C for about 15 minutes.
