Creased Cheese Pie is a different Greek pie called Patsavouropita (pronounced. pah-tsah-vou-RHO-pee-ta), which is very easy to make and tastes amazing. This Greek pie is made by creasing each phyllo sheet and dipping it in a batter made with soda water, eggs and feta.
Tyropita (pronounced tee- ROH -pee-ta) from tyri = cheese and pita = pie and Strifti (pronounced stri-FTEE), which means twisted. It takes it’s name from the way the cheese pie is shaped.
Glykia Tyropita, which means sweet cheese pie, was inspired by Cypriot Bourekia, which are made with homemade phyllo, anari (whey cheese similar to ricotta), cinnamon and orange blossom water.
These tasty cheese-filled triangles are finger foods and can be served as appetizers, mezedes, side dishes, and snacks.
