    My mom frequently made these when we were kids. We couldn't wait to bite into them while they were still warm.

    Pastry

    Apple filling

    Cinnamon or sugar mixture

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pastry:.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, mix flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Stir in water until completely moistened. Divide pastry into 2 equal portions. Roll out each portion thinner than you would for pie crust. Cut into circles with a 3-1/2" biscuit or cookie cutter.
    3. 3
      Apple filling:.
    4. 4
      In a medium saucepan, simmer diced apples, cider, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg over low heat until apples are soft. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch with enough water to form a thin consistency; stir into apple mixture and cook until mixture thickens.
    5. 5
      Assembly and cooking:.
    6. 6
      Brush pastry circles with beaten egg. Place a small spoonful of apple mixture in center of each circle. Fold pastry over filling to form a half circle. Press edges together with a fork to seal.
    7. 7
      Heat 1 cup of cooking oil to 400 degrees in an electric skillet. Place several empanadas in hot oil at a time, cooking on one side, and turning over when golden brown. Cook second side until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle tops of empanadas with cinnamon and sugar mixture.

      I also did not have the same results as some. When I went to fry the dough all it did was fall apart. As far as the filling- delicious. We ended up eating the filling.

      I wish I would have had the same results as the rest of the other cooks. I am not sure if I did something wrong, I was looking forward to this enjoying these empanads. :0(

      I used puff pastry to make these, using 3 layers and butter in between. I left out the raisins and used finely chopped walnuts in place of them in the filling. They were very much enjoyed as a happy ending to our Mexican themed dinner. I can see us making these very often, as my girls and I loved them! Thank you Bahill!
