CHEESE PIES

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE FILLING

100g feta cheese
1 cup finely grated kefalotyri cheese
2 tsp dry mint
1 tsp white pepper
2 large free range eggs beaten
sesame seeds for sprinkling
1 egg beaten for egg washing the pies

FATHEAD PIZZA DOUGH

140g grated full fat mozzarella cheese
55g full fat cream cheese
1 room temperature free range egg beaten
190g almond flour

METHOD

FOR THE DOUGH

Place the mozzarella and cream cheese in a glass mixing bowl. Cover the bowl and microwave for two minutes. Mix in the beaten egg. Add the almond flour and mix. Using your hands, knead the dough until all the ingredients are well combined. Roll into a ball and place one side.

FOR THE FILLING

Crumble the feta cheese (use a good quality) into a glass mixing bowl. Add the kefalotyri, two beaten eggs, mint and pepper. Mix well.

TO MAKE THE PIES

Place a piece of the dough on a silicon mat or a piece of baking paper. Cover the dough with a piece of baking paper and roll out. Using a small cup or pastry cutter, cut the rolled out dough into rings. Once the rings are all cut, remove the excess dough and knead it back into the leftover dough. Place a three quarter teaspoon of the filling on each round. Fold over and pinch the edges to seal properly. Place the prepared pies onto a silicon mat on a baking sheet. Continue rolling out pieces of dough and making the pies to fill the baking tray. Brush the pies gently with the beaten egg and sprinkle a few sesame seeds over each one. Bake on 190° for 10 minutes or until golden
