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!
I've been hanging on to this recipe for quite some time, and I finally got around to making them. I made a few of changes due to family requests: I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour, added some cinnamon to the dough, omitted the raisins, and baked them instead of frying them. I still want to try them as written, but they were great even with the "healthifying" changes. I baked them on parchment lined baking sheets at 350F for about 25 minutes (until they were slightly browned). Because the ratio of whole wheat to white flour made them a bit drier, I served them warm with some warmed cajeta as a dip (definitely making them more nutritionally naughty, but who can argue with a little warm cajeta lol?). I'll definitely be making these again, because I can only imagine how good they must be with all white flour and fried! Thanks for posting!
The Apple Filling is great! I used Empanada Dough (tagged in a game) for the pastry and it couldn't have been better! Thanks for sharing!
I love this filling! I used a diffrent dough for the recipe Empanada Dough and chose to bake them to make them a bit healthier. Very good recipe!
have never had empinadas sweet before and this was really good.
I think that the Apple Empanadas are very good. I made them for my family, and they loved them. I also mad them for a school project. My classmates loved them too.
