Tiropitakia Recipe: A Greek Traditional Feta Triangles Recipe

Tiropitakia is one of my favorite appetizers ever since I was a kid! These Greek traditional feta cheese triangles (or little cheese pies) are a delicious combination of salty feta cheese with phyllo dough. So mouthwatering, you can eat them any time of the day! Hence, if you want to impress your guests, you need to try this tiropitakia recipe!

I got this tiropitakia recipe from my sister who, just like my mother, is a great cook. She used to make a ton of them on every special occasion and when we had guests over the home. Needless to say, we could not stop eating them once we started!

This tiropitakia recipe, simply the best one, will give you around 50 pieces and takes around 60 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook. To create this awesomeness, you need some phyllo dough, feta cheese, cream cheese, nutmegs, eggs, dill and some butter.

Most importantly, no cooking skills are required for this Greek tiropitakia recipe. Try to avoid adding salt to the filling as feta is already salty! Moreover, if you wish your tiropitakia to get a nice color, you can brush them with a beaten yolk.
