Kalitsunia – small pies with herbs of Spring

Taste that delights … is an emblematic creation of the Cretan cuisine of welfare and longevity. Made with all the spring greens and I’m sure you will adopt these small pies in your kitchen as I did …

You can add your favorite greens to the stuffing but even the wild ones blend amazingly … if you like you can put some grated feta cheese, so you will have another version like cheese-herb pies.

My beloved friend, Vasilis Stathakis, who has “initiated” me into this taste … is the owner of the historic «Kipos» café in Chania, a place for the meeting of the politicians of Crete. It is the only recognized Greek Historic café and is distinguished among the list of historical cafes in Europe.

Steps

1
Done

Prepare the dough for the filo by stirring all the ingredients together and kneading vigorously by hand.

2
Done
1 hour

The dough should be «rested» for 1 hour so that it can be opened more easily with the roller.

3
Done

We divide the dough into three parts.

4
Done

Using a tea saucer as a guide, cut with a wheel or a knife round pieces of each sheet.

5
Done

Prepare the filling by mixing in a large bowl the herbs all together that we have carefully washed before chopping them.

6
Done

Beat the eggs in another bowl and pour them into the bowl of herbs.

7
Done

Mix all the ingredients of the filling with a wooden spoon or with our hand.

8
Done

At the center of each piece of sheet (filo) we put a teaspoon of filling and fold over its edges towards the center to form a square kalitsouni whose final shape looks like an envelope.

9
Done

Put the pies in a baking dish that has been «brushed» with olive oil.

10
Done

With a brush, we ‘pass’ the kalitsounia with the egg yolk that we have prepared.

11
Done
20 minutes

Put the baking pan in a well preheated oven at 200 ° C for 20 minutes until they get a golden-brown color.

12
Done

Eat hot or cold, however you prefer to find them to be even more delicious!!
