Greek ‘sarikopita’ means fried sheets of pastry stuffed with cheese

Sarikopita

Found mainly in central Crete, sarikopitakia are similar to fried tiropita. They are made using crispy, handmade sheets of pastry and stuffed with sour mizithra.

They can be served as-is or topped with honey. Their name comes from their shape, which resembles a turban or sariki. Feta cheese can also be used instead of mizithra, however the cheese used should not be soft, since it will spill out during frying. In another version, they are filled with sweet pumpkin.
