Kourou Cheese Pies ~ Τυροπιτάκια Κουρού

Lots of recipes lately not because I have been baking more but because I have more time for uploads! For me good home made food is a must so baking and cooking different recipes are part of my daily routine! I will share another cheese pie recipe that I found the other day and I thought it was worth trying.

In Greece we have two different types of cheese pies. Ones are made with filo pastry and the other ones with kourou pastry which is a type of short crust pastry. I always thought that kourou as any type of pastry is difficult to make. I was wrong! Even though I haven’t tried any other recipe apart from this one I have realized that it is very easy to make! I would recommend it to ones that are new in baking!


750 g self raising flour

1 1/2 cup of milk

2 cups grated parmesan cheese

250 g butter

2 eggs

500 g feta cheese

a bit of olive oil

sesame for decoration

In a bowl we mix the flour, parmesan cheese, butter, milk and one of the eggs. We work the mixture until it turns into an elastic dough. We add milk or flour depending on whether it is too dry or moist. We let it aside to rest and we grate the feta cheese and mix it with a bit of olive oil. Take a small fist of dough and work it into a flat circle. Place some feta in the middle and close it so that you form a crescent. When we have formed all the cheese pies we beat the other egg and dilute it with a bit of water. Brush the pies with the mixture and sprinkle with sesame.

Bake in a preheated oven at 190 C for about 15 minutes or until they are golden.

share the love :-)
