    recipe title: Kalitsounia Me Kanella (Cretan Cheese-cinnamon Pastries)
    category: Cookies
    keywords: greek, Cookies, Desserts
    servings: 20
      1 1/2 c  Fresh mizithra or ricotta
          2 tb Grated hard ricotta
          2    Eggs; separated
        1/2 c  Granulated sugar
          2 tb Butter; melted
          4 tb Milk (or more)
          2 c  All-purpose flour
          1 pn Salt
          1 ts Vanilla extract
               Confectioners' sugar
    For the filling, combine the cheeses, lightly beaten egg yolks, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and melted butter in a bowl. The mixture should be thick enough to mound, but not stiff; add 1 tablespoon milk, if necessary. Set aside while you make the dough. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl, then cut in the butter and mix by rubbing between your fingers. Mix in the vanilla, egg whites, and enough milk to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth and elastic, then break off small pieces and roll as thin of a dime. (The dough will be elastic and can be rolled easily.) Cut into circles 4-inches in diameter (teacup size), then on each circle place a teaspoon of the cheese filling. Wet the circle edge with water or milk and fold over to form a half-moon, then seal with the tines of a fork or pastry wheel. Arrange the Kaltisounia on buttered cookie sheets and bake in a moderate oven (350 F) for 25 minutes, or until the pastry puffs up and turns a light chestnut color. Remove from the oven, and place on racks, and dust with confectioners' sugar and cinnamon. Serve hot or cold. From: "The Food of Greece" by Vilma Liacouras Chantiles. Avenel Books, New York.
