Sfakianés pítes

Σφακιανές πίτες

The soft cheese pie from Sfakia (also known as Sfakianoópita or Σφακιανόπιτα) is the second most popular Cretan pie after kalitsoeunia.

It’s a thin crèpe-like pie made with olive oil and salt and as much cheese as flour: ideally use anthotyros and/or xinomyzithra (but myzithra is good, too). Cook in the frying pan and while still warm and topped with thyme honey, you can see why it’s so popular.
