Ingredients (~24 cheese pies)

  • 500 g (1.1 lbs) flour
  • 500 g (1.1 lbs) feta cheese
  • 200 g (7.1 lbs) yogurt
  • 200 g (7.1 lbs) vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 g (0.28 lbs) dry yeast
  • freshly ground pepper

Dough

In a large bowl sift the flour and pour over the yogurt, yeast, oil, a little salt, 1 whole egg and egg white from the second egg.
You will keep the yolk to spread the surface of the triangles at the end.
Knead the mixture gently for 10' to have a velvety texture and fluffy dough, which will not stick to your hands. If necessary add a little flour.
Cover with a kitchen towel, and leave it for a while on the edge.

Filling

In smaller bowl crumble the feta with a fork, add 1 egg and freshly ground pepper.
Stir thoroughly to homogenize the mixture.
We touch the dough on work surface and divide into two equal parts.
No need to flour the work surface.
With a rolling pin roll out a thin sheet on each disc of dough, giving it a rectangular shape.
Spread half the amount of the filling in the entire surface of the dough sheet.
Starting from the longer side we roll the sheet to enclose the filling.
Let it roll with the joining downwardly.
With the dough cutter or with a knife cut the roll into triangular pieces the length of the roll. Place the triangles on a large oven dish covered with greaseproof paper.
Cover with towel and let stand for a while in the warm.
Beat the egg, which you hold with a little milk and brush the pies.
Bake in preheated convection oven at 180°C (356°F, Gas:4.2) for ~20 minutes or until they get a ruby color on top and underneath.
