Koulouropita, Traditional Greek Feta Cheese Pie

Koulouropita, Traditional Greek Feta Cheese Pie


For the dough

  • 1 kg flour for all purposes
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt

For the filling

  • 500 gr goat feta cheese
  • ½ cup of trahana

For the phyllo dough

  • 100 gr olive oil
  • 100 gr cow milk butter
  • Cornflour/cornstarch to help you stretch the dough



Mix flour, oil and salt. Make a hole in the middle and pour some water. Work the dough and keep adding a little water until the dough is just a little bit sticky. Then cover the dough with a cloth and leave it there to rest for half an hour.


Meanwhile, melt the butter and mix it with the olive oil. Crumble the feta cheese. Fill a small bowl with little water and another one with the trahana. With a pastry brush apply oil on the inside of your baking pan. Preheat oven to 200℃. After half an hour separate the dough into 10 balls.


Dust your kitchen table with corn flour and place a ball of dough in the middle. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough, until it becomes a very thin sheet.


Dip your fingers in the bowl with the water and sprinkle the dough with some water drops. Brush lightly the dough with the butter-oil mixture. Sprinkle with some feta cheese and some trahana.
