Make the Ricotta Cheese
Start by making some homemade ricotta so it has time to strain and thicken. It is very simple to do and this recipe can also be found in the Mezze Cookbook. Of course if you prefer to bought store bought you can do that also.
Cheese Pastry Dough
Make sure you follow the steps in the cookbook to make the Cheese Pastry dough. Once you make the dough, cover it with a towel or wrap it in a mat so it can rise.
Next you need to make the filling. Use the strained ricotta and other ingredients in the Anari Tiropita recipe to make the filling. Now, boil some sesame seeds to use in coating your little cheese parcels. Now you need to set up your work space. Set the dough to one side. Have knife or roller ready. I use a pizza cutter to cut the dough on a chopping board. Put filling aside along with a little bowl of egg to coat the parcels and the boiled sesame seeds.
Time to create your cheese parcels
First, add some wet sesame seeds to mat or chopping board. Put some dough on top of the sesame seeds and roll the dough out into a round circle. Use your pizza cutter or a knife to cut the dough into small pizza shapes eighths. Add a little of the cheese filling to each end and roll them up. Lastly, put them on a tray, coat them in the egg mixture, then they are ready to be cooked.
