Easy Halloumi Cheese Pie

Such recipes usually are created when I have friends coming over with a short notice. This pie was created a few months ago, once again with ingredients I had at home.

To be honest I expected a normal result but the pie ended to be very tasty. According to my taste, the puff pastry can be easily omitted.

In a previous post I gave step by step instructions on how you can make your own halloumi cheese, but nowadays I am sure you can find halloumi cheese in all supermarkets.

This recipe was created especially for the “Creative Concoctions #4”, an event which is held in Kopiaste.. to Greek Hospitality.

Some ingredients of the Halloumi Pie: Puff pastry, halloumi cheese, yogurt, semolina and eggs.

In a rectangular pie baking pan, lay puff pastry to cover the bottom and the sides of the baking pan.

In a bowl mix together the halloumi cheese, the eggs, the olive oil and the yogurt; add semolina, baking powder and peppermint.

 Pour the halloumi mixture on top of the puff pastry.

 Bake for about 40 – 45 minutes or until the top of the pie becomes golden brown.

Serve hot or cold.

Below you can find the full recipe. Enjoy!!!

Easy Halloumi Cheese Pie

425gr puff pastry (1 pastry phyllo)
450gr halloumi cheese (grated)
2 large eggs (beaten)
1 cup strained Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fine semolina
4 tablespoons chopped fresh or dried peppermint
2 teaspoons baking powder

Preparation Method
1) Preheat the oven to 170ºC (350ºF) fan forced.
2) In a rectangular pie baking pan, lay puff pastry to cover the bottom and the sides of the baking pan.
3) In a bowl mix together the halloumi cheese, the eggs, the olive oil and the yogurt; add semolina, baking powder and peppermint.
4) Pour the halloumi mixture on top of the puff pastry.
5) Bake for about 40 – 45 minutes or until the top of the pie becomes golden brown.
6) Serve hot or cold.

A lighter version could be to omit the puff pastry. The baking time should be reduced 35’ minutes.

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
