    And this Flour Pie would be eaten as a snack?
    Sounds so simple to make.
    Would you change the spices to make as a sweet?

    It's a great snack! If you like you can use mascarpone cheese (here in Crete we use myzithra), refrigerate the pies for 10 minutes, before you fry them and pour some honey and cinnamon to make them a sweet dessert!
