  1. Very nice tart. I love the combination of flavours. This one is a keeper!

    1. Thank you, Alida, appreciate!
      Have a nice new week from tomorrow!

  2. I really love this recipe, crust and filling all in one?! easy, delicious, and unusual!
    The only thing is: to be careful with the salt. The olives, feta cheese, and the self-rising flour all have salt. I would not add any extra salt to the ingredients. Love the combination, of the filling. I think I would make my own crust separately, and for sure use your yummy filling, to see how that would turn out?

    BTW-Helen, I'm following your blog, and invite you to do the same! Sorry abt. not promoting the Liebster blog award...but they are exclusively for new blogger~so congratulations on you getting the award:DDD

  3. I love feta cheese but I only use it for my salads, never thought about making a cheese pie it would be simply great!

  4. Mmmm...looks as something I want to make for a party at home.

  5. So easy yet delicious!! Hugs Helen!
