Get ready to embark on a culinary journey to the Mediterranean as we guide you through the steps of creating these delightful Greek cheese pies.

Mixing the Dough

Start by combining 33.5 oz (950 g) of all-purpose flour, 21.2 oz (600 g) of water, 1.8 oz (50 g) of olive oil, 1 tsp of salt, and the juice of half a lemon in a large mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients together until a cohesive dough forms.

Kneading the Dough

Transfer the dough onto a clean surface and knead it gently for a few minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. This process will help develop the gluten in the dough, resulting in a tender and flaky texture.

Resting the Dough

Divide the dough into small balls and place them in a bowl soaked with olive oil. Allow the dough to rest for about 20 minutes, allowing the gluten to relax and the flavors to meld.

Rolling Out the Dough

Take one dough ball at a time and roll it out using your hands. Please watch the recipe video to see how.

Adding the Feta Cheese

Crumble the feta cheese into small pieces and place a generous amount onto one half of the rolled-out dough. Be sure to leave some space around the edges for folding and sealing the pie.

Folding and Sealing the Greek Cheese Pies

Carefully fold the other half of the dough over the cheese filling. Press the edges firmly to seal the pie. Repeat this process for the remaining dough balls and feta cheese.

Frying the Greek Cheese Pies

In a deep frying pan or pot, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil reaches the desired temperature, carefully place the pies into the hot oil, a few at a time. Fry them until golden brown on both sides, ensuring they are cooked through and the cheese is melted.

Enjoying the Delightful Greek Cheese Pies

Once the pies are cooked to perfection, remove them from the oil and let them drain on a paper towel-lined plate to remove any excess oil. Serve the Greek Feta Fried Cheese Pies while they are still warm, allowing the irresistible combination of crispy dough and gooey feta cheese to tantalize your taste buds. These delightful treats are perfect as an appetizer, snack, or even a main course.
