The secret to the success of traditional Skopelos twisted cheese pie lies in its genuine local ingredients, the right frying that leads to its bright golden hue and the handmade phyllo dough.

The ingredients are white flour, extra virgin olive oil and local goat cheese. The simplicity of the local ingredients lends prestige to the traditional recipe of skopelitiki cheese pie.

The following recipe is from the restaurants of Adrina Hotels. Visit Adrina TavernaAdrina Lunch Restaurant and  Adrina Dinner Restaurant for a unique gastronomy experience.


For the dough
1 kg plain flour
1 or 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
a pinch of salt
water as needed for the dough
Corn flour to open the sheets of the dough

For the filling
½ kg goat cheese (feta cheese)
a bit of pepper


  • The first thing we do is put the plain flour in a bowl and add some extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt. We begin to knead the mix adding a bit of water when needed, until the dough becomes soft.
  • Then, we cut the dough in two balls and leave them to rest from 15 minutes.
  • In another bowl we add feta cheese and a bit of pepper. We crush the cheese with a fork.
  • Next we sprinkle the counter with corn flour and roll one sheet, brushing it with olive oil. Then we place the crushed cheese on sheet’s surface.
  • Then, we roll the dough balls on the sheet and shape them like a snail.
  • We fry them in a pan (medium heat) with extra virgin olive oil, until they get a bright gold colour.
  • We drain the pies on paper towels, place them on a plate and serve them hot.
