Ricotta Pies

Ricotta Pies

A good friend comes to mind whenever I bake these pies as she loves them. These ricotta pies are great to serve as appetisers at a drinks party or simply just to have as a snack or a light meal. I made around 26 small pies as you always need to taste a couple!

Ingredients
  • 2 baking trays
  • 250g fresh ricotta
  • A generous handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 packet feta cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 150g grated parmesan cheese
  • A sprinkle of Himalayan salt as seasoning
  • 250g short crust pastry
  • Cooking spray to grease your baking trays
Directions
  • Step 1 Start off by preparing your ingredients. Blend the mint finely, then add the ricotta, feta cheese and mix until you have a soft, smooth mixture. Add your eggs and cheese and seasoning and carry on mixing.
  • Step 2 Roll out your pastry on a floured surface and use a pastry cutter to cut out circular cases from the pastry. Place the pastry cases into your greased baking trays.
  • Step 3 Fill the pastry cases with a generous teaspoon of filling. Before placing in the oven to bake, pierce each pie with a knife to avoid the pies puffing up in the oven.
  • Step 4 Bake them for around 20 minutes in a fan-assisted oven at 160C. Check that the ricotta is firm and pastry is cooked through, they should have a nice light brown colour.
