How to make Apple Empanadas Recipe
To begin making Apple Empanadas Recipe, use a sharp knife to core and thinly slice the apples into wedges.
Toss the apple slices into a medium skillet and add cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and brown sugar.
Sauté on a medium heat for 5 minutes, or until the apples have softened a little bit. Keep them aside.
Lightly flour a surface and roll out pastry dough to 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) thick.
Cut into circles for making empanadas and place filling in the center of the dough circle for empanadas.
Fold dough over to make a filled half circle and use a fork to press the edges together. Refrigerate uncooked empanadas for 3 hours.
Deep fry in oil 6 to7 minutes until golden brown. And drain the excess oil using several layers of absorbent paper before serving. Dust it with some powdered sugar and enjoy.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Once the uncooked empanadas are refrigerated for 3 hours, take them out and arrange it on a baking sheet lined with a parchment paper. Brush each of the empanadas with some milk.
Put the tray in oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden. Keep a close watch while the empanadas are baked in oven since the temperature and its distribution varies with ovens.
