    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    This is one of my favorite empanada dough recipes. You can fill the pastry with your choice of fruit filling or meat, whichever you prefer. I like to cook shredded pork in my crockpot and fill these pies and serve with a warm sauce and my Enchilada Soup. You can't go wrong with this recipe.

      This is the recipe I was looking for.The dough is nice and crispy, buttery and has a great texture and flavor. I used light Philadelphia cream cheese and 1/4 tsp. salt. I had 15 4-inch small empanadas filled with sauted mixture of onion,zucchini,red bell pepper,carrot,bacon and cheese. This dough would be great for chicken pot pie or apple pie as well. Next time I will double the recipe. Thank you

      I doubled the recipe and made 16 empanadas about six-inches in size. Very nice, flaky dough. I also used light cream cheese. I did sprinkle in some salt since I was using unsalted butter, but it could have used a little more. My bake time was closer to 30-40 minutes. The dough seemed too sticky before refrigeration so I added some flour but given how hard it was by the next day, I probably didn't need to.

      this recipe was ok...but theres no way that you get 30 empanadas out of this..I got 4 tiny tiny ones they were so small you could barley taste the feeling inside...If you want to make 30 you would have to time this recipe by 6
