Pizza Empanada


Empanadas

These lovely bundles do take a long time to make so I made an afternoon of it making a mess in the kitchen.  A great way to spend the afternoon.

I wish I could take credit for coming up with the recipes but we didn’t.  I made three types of empanada:

Guava Empanada

Check these out, they came out fantastic.  I did have a couple blow open so make sure you seal yours very well.

I also baked ours in the oven at 375 for about 20 minutes.  Really didn’t want all that oil if I fried them.
