Cheese Pie with filo crust


  1. Mix in a bowl the cheese with the semolina and the spearmint.
  2. Baste a rectangular baking pan with oil. Start placing the filo sheets in the pan. You should baste with oil each filo sheet separately. Place three filo sheets on the bottom. The bottom sheets should come up above the top of the pan.
  3. Start spreading the mixture on top of the bottom sheets. Do not spread all the mixture. Count three even portions of cheese mixture and after spreading each one place a filo sheet on top.
  4. When you have spread the last portion of mixture fold over the bottom sheets and add to more filo sheets on top, which they should be also basted with oil in order to become crunchy.
  5. Cut the pie in rectangular pieces.
  6. Beat eggs with milk and cream and pour over the pie. The mixture will be gradually absorbed.
  7. Pour soda and bake in preheated oven in 150 C – 160 C until filo sheets become golden.
