How to make it
- Mix the wet and dry ingredients with a fork until it becomes stiff.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead it just until all the flour is incorporated and the dough is smooth.
- Place the empanada dough on a floured counter top.
- Roll the dough out into a 1/8 inch thick layer.
- Cut the dough into circles with round cookie cutters or biscuit cutters.
- Tip: For large empanadas use 6 inch cutters for empanaditas use 3 inch cutters. If you don't have these handy, you can cut out the bottom of a coffee can,
- Remove the excess dough from the cut out circle. Place your filling of choice in the center of the circle.
- Carefully fold over the circle with contents into a semicircle. Crimp down the edges with a fork. If the edges won't stick together, wet your finger and rub it along the inside edge of the dough and try again.
- Finish the empanadas by deep frying in vegetable oil at 360 degrees for 1 to 2 minutes per side. They should be lightly golden. Drain on paper towels and serve warm. thats it!
