DIRECTIONS

  1. Mix all dough ingredients and make a medium soft dough, making sure that butter disappears in flour.
  2. Cover dough with a kitchen towel and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
  3. Flatten the dough (not too thin because it will be filled).
  4. With the help of a cookie mold, cut the dough in discs of 4-5 cm diameter each.
  5. Lift the ends of each disc to create a nest that will hold the filling.
  6. For the filling: Mix all ingredients until you have a thick mixture. Mizithra with sugar at first, flour next, softly whisked eggs, mastic and vanilla.
  7. Fill every disc with a tblsp of mixture and ‘pinch’ each disc roundwise until it becomes ‘pleated’.
  8. Butter a pan and bake in preheated oven at 180 C for 20 minutes choosing to heat from the bottom and then from top and bottom for another 20 minutes, until they become golden.
