Apple and caramel flavors fill these empanadas. Quick and easy to make and extra delicious when served warm.


Step 1

Preheat oven to 450° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Combine water and juice from lemon in medium, microwave-safe bowl. Add apples to water mixture; stir to coat. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 2 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in dulce de leche until melted. Stir in flour and cinnamon.

Step 4

Place empanada discs on prepared baking sheet. Place a rounded tablespoon of apple mixture on each disc. Fold in half, sealing edges with fingers or tines of a fork.

Step 5

Brush with egg. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.

Step 6

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.

Cook’s Tip:

Ready-made refrigerated pastry sheets can be used in place of empanada discs. Simply use an inverted bowl that measures 5 inches in diameter to cut out circles.
