Easy Cheesy Triangles (Tiropitakia )๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿง€

I first started making these 27 years ago. I have been known to cook enough of these tiropitesย to feed an entire class (many times). The more accolades l got, the more and more l made. It was a vicious wonderful circle of love.

Once a week I would pop them in the oven first thing in the morning so that the kids could take them to school (prep the night before)

Iโ€™m pleased to say that itโ€™s been years since my children finished school, but their friends still remember Debbieโ€™s tiropites

The pastry isn't handย made likeย yiayiaย Sofia makes it, but she does approve โœ”๏ธDon't worry if the cheese squirts out after cooking. These escaping cheesy bits are awesome to eat ๐Ÿ˜‹

And remember ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธTiro (cheese)ย + Pitakia (savoury bites) = Tiropitakia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท

Ingredients

  • 6 sheets thawed puff pastry - 1kg (not low fat or home brand which I find are never the same)
  • 250 g smooth full fat ricotta cheese
  • 150 g Greek feta cheese crumbed
  • 250 g grated mixed yellow cheeses i.e. mozzarella, cheddar and some parmesan)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • some melted butter to brush over the triangles

Method

  • Mix all ingredients well in blender or with a spoon
  • Cut each pastry piece into 4 squares
  • Put a tablespoon of mixture in the middle of each square
  • Fold the pastry over into triangle
  • Seal edges well with a fork
  • Brush top with oil or butter and sprinkle with some water
  • Place on lined tray in oven and cook until golden brown like in the photo at appox 200 C. Timing varies with every oven, so keep an eye out on them. Mine usually take about 40-45 mins and l flip them over when they have browned on one side.

Tips and Tricks

  • If the pastry breaks as you are making the tiropites, you can mend it by pinching it back together.
  • If you want smaller triangles, you can cut again when they have cooled down a bit.

Practice makes perfect!
