Tyropita Kourou is a cheese pie made with a type of phyllo which I would describe somewhat like tart dough.
Kourou is an unleavened phyllo, light and flaky due to the butter and yoghurt it contains.
In Greece you can get many types of tyropita (cheese pie) the most popular being homemade “horiatiko“, meaning village phyllo.
The basic kourou phyllo is made with butter, Greek yoghurt, flour and salt.However, you can also add an egg to the dough, in which case more flour is added to the dough.
