Cheese Pie (τυρόπιτα)

Cretan Cuisine - Cheese Pie (τυρόπιτα)

Cheese Pie (τυρόπιτα) is a fairly easy Greek recipe that has been passed down in many families on Crete. Tiropita snacking is delightful to have at parties as a starter or side dish. This can be made in batches, then frozen for when you want to enjoy the lovely creamy taste of your cheese pies. They freeze well and make a taste bud busting appetizer course at dinner.
