Greek Cheese Pies with Yoghurt Dough (Tiropitakia) Recipe
This is another variety of cheese pie. This is one made with Greek strained yoghurt. Please note, the yoghurt is not part of the filling, but is part of the dough itself, which gives it its own special taste. These small pies can be served as a side dish, or as a meze or in a buffet.
