Sfakianopites are small cheese pies from the beautiful region of Sfakia in south-west Crete. They are also ideal for breakfast or brunch !!!

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup of water
500 gr myzithra
2 tablespoons ouzo or raki

2.Roll the cheese into golf-ball size lumps and place in the centre of the circle of dough, placing another circle over the top and pinch the edges together.
3.In a hot pan, fry the pies with little or no oil until browned on both sides.
