Milopitakia are delicious mini Greek apple tarts! The recipe is very interesting and worth tasting. The dough and the filling are lean! This means you can even have these cakes when you are on a diet! The dough turns out crispy, fragrant, but very tender and melting! And the filling is rich in flavors and ingredients! I think Milopitacchia has become my favorite among the Lenten pastries! For the recipe, thanks to Glaros, a chef from Athens! Enjoy it!

How to cook milopitacchia step by step with photos

The filling and the dough will be made at the same time, so I will tell you in the order that will optimize our work! Raisins are washed and left to stand in boiling water to soften. Then we drain them. Crush the nuts, but not into crumbs. You can also remove the zest from two oranges. Cut the apples into four pieces, peel the core and skin, cut each piece into 2-3 more pieces. Pour apples into a saucepan, cover with sugar and simmer over low heat until all the liquid evaporates. It took me about 15-20 minutes. You should get a nice mush. Transfer it to a bowl and let it cool.

While apples are stewing, we make dough. In a separate bowl we mix all the liquid ingredients: vegetable oil, freshly squeezed orange juice and cognac. We can whisk the mixture with a whisk for homogeneity.

Mix flour with baking powder and sift into a large bowl.

Then add sugar, salt, vanilla and cinnamon! Mix with a whisk.

Start gradually adding the liquid part and the zest of one orange to the flour. Knead a soft dough that doesn't stick to your hands. If you don't have enough liquid to make the dough in one piece, then mix a little more butter and juice (1:1) and add to the dough. It turns out like this, a little embossed, because. к. it does not contain any eggs.

Meanwhile, our apple "porridge" Cooled. Add raisins, nuts, the zest of an orange, and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly.

We divide the dough into three parts. Roll out each piece to a 0.5-cm-thick layer and use a glass to cut out circles. Then roll out each circle with a rolling pin and spread about 1 teaspoon (without the hill) of the filling. Pinch the edge and press a little on our mini tart. The edge can be pinched without much effort. Even if the patty is slightly open, the filling does not leak.

Here we are, our little ones are ready! I have 31 pieces - 1.5 trays. Put them on baking paper and put into preheated 180 degrees oven for 20-30 minutes. The tops should brown. But don't overdo it.

They look like this after the oven! Garnish with powdered sugar and serve! Enjoy your tea time!
