    ** Poppy **'s Note:

    This is a traditional greek pie,we usually make it on New Years Day in place of the traditional Vasilopita (New Years cake) and place a coin in it, so that whoever finds it will have good luck for the rest of the year. But they also serve it on special occasions, engagement parties, weddings, birthdays and name days.
