Greek Travelling Pie

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Amis

These are more similar to a cake than a pie, so I'm not sure where the name comes from. Supposedly, these mini cakes were eaten by Greek warriors when they were traveling. I made these on our last road trip. They kept well as long as they stayed wrapped. The kids loved them. Zaar World Tour 05

with regard to Amis' question as to why these are called a 'pie' and not a cake. In Greece this would be called a 'pita' which translates into English as pie. Pita in Greek is just generic though for something flat and baked. ;-)
