    Gidget265's Note:

    I got this recipe from Bon Appetit, but they didn't have it published on their web site, so I'm putting it here for safe keeping. It was in the 'request' section where readers write in and ask for a recipe from a location / restaurant they'd eaten at. This one comes from the Grace Bay Club in Turks and Caicos. It looks quite good - so I'm hoping some of us enjoy this! UPDATE - I made these this weekend and they were good and went over big at a party. I made a double batch and note the puff pastry at my grocery was $4.99 ea - so for a double batch - that is 3 packages...so not an inexpensive appetizer for a party... Many liked them - but I thought next time I might see about using pie pastry instead of the puff pastry and perhaps adding a bit of cheese or maybe potato inside of the empenadas? The dip was great - even with tortilla chips too.... :)

      Loved it. We only used one package of puff pastry shells, not one and a half as requested, and it made more than enough.
