Here's another of my mom's famous Greek dishes - buttery, flaky cheese triangles known as Tyropita (or Spanikopita, when you add spinach). Again, a holiday tradition in our family, but delicious any ol' time of the year. And really simple to make, once you get the hang of working with the delicate phyllo dough.
