      If you don't mind, a correction: they are called "Empadas." Empanadas are a bit different and are not Brazilian. I'll try it and rate afterwards. (I have trouble figuring a good dough for pastel, since AMerican flour is completely different from the Brazilian; my recipes don't work here...)

      Ok! so cheated with the dough using Goya`s 10 discos grandes pre-packaged dough for the turnovers. Used cherry tomatoes in place of the plum (Thats what I have so far in my garden). Added 1 hot chili. Used 1/4 cup sherry. Added the diced shrimp mixed and removed from the stove. For it will continue cooking in the hot veggies and when frying. Didn`t want them overcooked.
