    Amis's Note:

    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. ;-)

      I made a ¼ size recipe of this, since there are only the two of us. The “dough” seemed very runny to me, almost like oatmeal, so I added more sugar and flour to thicken it up to a thick oatmeal state. Then I used a mini ice cream scoop to make as close to balls as possible and baked ½ of what I made. Those turned out really good. I think they might have been even better if I had not tried to thicken the “dough”. The other half of the dough I added about ½ cup more sugar and 2 cups of flour, so that it resembled bread dough. That way, I could try to make miniature balls out of it as the recipe states. These “pies” also tasted really good, but they had a tough texture from the extra flour and the extra mixing I had to do to get the flour worked in. Next time I won’t make any changes, because it seems that my idea of a dough is not what was needed for these “pies”. Let me reiterate: These were very good, and I will be making them again!
