- 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.
