Tiropita is a savory Greek pastry that tantalizes the taste buds with its layers of flaky phyllo dough and a rich filling of creamy cheese. Traditionally made with a blend of feta and ricotta, the cheese mixture is seasoned with herbs, such as dill or oregano, adding a burst of Mediterranean flavor. The phyllo layers, brushed with butter, crisp up during baking, creating a golden, delicate crust that encases the flavorful cheese blend. The result is a delightful fusion of textures, with the crunchy exterior giving way to a creamy, cheesy interior. Tiropita is not only a delicious savory snack but also a representation of Greek culinary craftsmanship, embodying the art of layering and balancing flavors.
Flaky, buttery, and oh-so-yummy! These cheese-filled pastries make a great snack, side, or party finger food.
