This Greek meze is perfect for entertaining, and the pastry could not be easier to make. Serve as a nibble or starter, and enjoy the leftovers for weeks to come - they freeze well after they're baked. Just defrost and pop them in a warm oven, and you'll think they're freshly baked.
After brushing the tops with beaten egg, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
I've just made these and like previous reviewers found the pastry easy to make and it is delicious, so I will use for other recipes. Here is my feedback: I made 32 using a larger cutter -78mm - and still had some pastry left over. Don't be tempted to overfill them and you must crimp the edges really well to stop the filling leaking out. Next time I will take more care on the edges. Some were good, others not so but still tasted delicious. Am waiting the real test when I do these for my Greek friend! Update from my Greek friend - try a little chopped mint in the cheesy filling. Haven't tried this yet but will next time! - 10 Jul 2012
I don't think I've made better pasty. So delicious, and quite easy considering the results one gets! A lovely recipe. Freeze well, too. - 01 Jul 2011
