The most famous delicacies for your sweet tooth!

Lychnarakia (Little Oil Lamps)


Lychnarakia
Lychnarakia


Made with cream cheese (mizithra), eggs, orange zest, sugar and vanilla. The mixture is prepared in a large bowl, and then fyllo dough is opened in order to be filled with the mixture. The shape of the candy is that of a small oil lamp. They are baked in the oven until golden, and they can be kept in the fridge for a long period of time.


Chiti Tiropita (Poured sweet cheese-pie)

The mixture is exactly the same as the Lychnarakia, although it is not enclosed in fyllo, but poured in a tin and then baked until golden. Chiti was usually prepared if the fyllo dough wasn't enough for the amount of mixture that had been prepared for the Lychnarakia. It can be kept in the fridge, too.

Loukoumia are the most famous Cycladic sweets. They are prepared with corn flour, rosewater, water and sugar. There are varieties of loukoumia, other contain walnuts and almonds, others are flavoured with various scents (vanilla, rose), and they are small enough to satisfy your need for sugar, yet not sinful enough to provide you with extra calories!
