Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup feta crumbled
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dill chopped (can sub 1 teaspoon dried dill)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 2 sheets puff pastry (400g), thawed
  • 1 egg + 1 tablespoon water (for the egg wash)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, mix the feta, ricotta cheese, dill, salt and pepper and egg to create the filling. [Tip: mix all of the ingredients except the egg first. Taste and adjust seasonings and then add the egg.]
  • Cut your pastry sheets into your desired size. I used 2 square sheets and cut each of them into 9 pieces.
  • Spoon the feta mixture into the middle of the puff pastry square. Fold over one corner of the puff pastry sheet to form a triangle shape. Gently press down with your fingers.
  • Using the tines of a fork, press down gently around the edges to seal the puff pastry parcels. Arrange the puff pastry parcels on the baking sheets, leaving room for them to expand when they bake.
  • Mix the egg and water to form the egg wash. Brush each tiropita with the egg wash. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
