If you love empanadas, this is a great recipe to have on hand. This basic empanada pastry can be used with any of your favourite empanada fillings. Empanadas make great party nibbles when made bite-size!
I decreased the sugar to about a tbs. and ended up adding some more water to make the dough pliable. My empanadas turned out well. Make sure and roll your dough out well, so they aren't too thick. Thanks! - 28 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We blend 1T butter with 6T shortening with 2 knives, then follow these directions. Our filling was a mixture of shredded chicken breasts, onions, hard boiled eggs, green olives, cumin, chili powder, chicken bouillon powder, bay leaf, paprika. Topped with sour cream and salsa. - 09 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Good texture, but much too sweet. Would be good for banana empanadas. - 27 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
