Empanadas; a timeless treat and staple across Latin cuisines. They are incredibly versatile and fun to experiment with, here are a few easy and delicious recipes for both savory and sweet empanadas.
Sweet Apple Empanadas
Honey Crisp Apples
Peel and dice your apples into small chunks and add them to a bowl (squeeze lemon over the chopped apple).
Melt the piloncillo with cinnamon and butter in a small pot. Once liquified, pour the mixture over the apples and toss them together until you have a substantial coating.
Place the apples on the Goya dough and fold the dough over the contents. Press the edges of the dough to seal the empanada prior to being placed in the oven.
Apply your egg wash to the dough and then bake them at 350º until golden brown.
Top with powdered sugar and enjoy!
Pro-Tip: Serve à la mode to satisfy your sweet tooth.
