This was submitted by Jan Kessler of Woodhaven, Mi. at the Pillsbury Bake-Off 40 (Orlando 2002). These little empanaditas are really wonderful! They just hit the right spot. You can serve them with a side of sour cream topped with chopped green onions or fresh chopped chives. These are great as an appetizer or as snacks.
