DELICIOUS FILO CHEESE PIE

Pie is one of the most favorite dishes in Macedonia and beyond. Every recipe is different and delicious. And I always experiment. My first idea was to make burek, then, I changed my mind and thought why don't I make maznik, and in the end, I made something that looks like maznik and burek but tastes like gibanica lol. Delicious!


Ingredients:

  •     400 g of filo layers for pie
  •     350 grams of cheese (you can use ricotta)
  •     180 g sour cream
  •     50 ml yogurt 
  •     2 eggs
  •     150 ml edible oil
  •     1/2 tsp baking powder
  •     1 tbs flour
  •     200 ml sparkling water
Preparation:

  1.     Put cheese, yogurt, sour cream, eggs, oil, baking powder, flour and sour water in a separate bowl and mix until a compact mixture is obtained.
  2.     Take one filo layer and sprinkle with a little oil and sparkling water. Align another layer, add filling evenly and roll.
  3.     In a pre-greased baking tray, arrange the circularly prepared baking sheets until the pan is completely filled.
  4.     Finally pour the pie with the remaining filling from above.
  5.     Let the pie stand for a while. In the meantime preheat the oven. Bake at 180 C degrees for about half an hour or until the pie gets a beautiful golden color.
  6. Leave to rest for 10-15 minutes after baking, then, serve warm with a glass of yogurt.
Note: You can also use thick yogurt instead of sour cream
