This pastry is simple to prepare and easy to handle. The crispy outer layers taste as though you are biting into a pillow filled with warm cheese. They are perfect for tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, on a cocktail buffet, or as a mid-afternoon snack. You can also use this filling when preparing the Greek layered pastry called tyropita.


Specialty Ingredients

  • Bulgarian feta cheese (other brands will do).


    Prepare Ahead

    The uncooked crescents can be frozen for several weeks. Freeze uncovered on a plastic-lined baking sheet, then transfer to an airtight container. Fry as directed without thawing.
