Ingredients

How to make it

  • MAKE THE DOUGH by beating together the butter and the cream cheese until it is all blended together.
  • Stir in the sea salt and the flour and mix well.
  • Knead the dough for a minute (until it holds together) no longer.
  • Form it into a ball wrap in plastic wrap and chill for half an hour.
  • MAKE THE FILLING
  • Heat the oil add the onion and sauté until translucent then add the garlic
  • Cook for another 2 minutes and add the tomatoes, capers, hot peppers and pimento olives the sea salt and the bay leaf * cumin.
  • Add the shrimp.
  • Simmer until mixture is dry and set aside to cool completely, about a half hour.
  • Taste before stuffing into pastry and add salt and spice to your liking.*
  • *I sometimes add cumin at this point or during the cooking about a teaspoon.
  • Remove the bay leaf before stuffing.
  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees
  • Grease a baking sheet with a little oil
  • MAKE EMPANADITAS "TURNOVERS"
  • Roll out dough with a rolling pin on a floured surface until about 1/8 inch thick
  • Use a 3 inch round cookie cutter and to cut out rounds.
  • Using a teaspoon fill each round by placing a heaping spoon in the center of the dough then fold over and seal the edges with a fork.
  • Beat the egg with a tablespoon of water to make an egg wash and paint it onto each turnover.
  • Bake until golden brown about 15 minutes.
  • Transfer to a rack and serve while still warm
  • Oh so good do not eat so many your self leave some for the guest.
