    CulinaryExplorer's Note:

    This is a quick and simple dessert I sorta came up with one night when I needed a little something and didn't have much to work with. I thought the idea resembled an empanada hence the name. I also tried to make it as guilt free as possible so used low fat where I could but if you don't care all that much I am sure it is even better with regular ingredients.

    1. 1
      Mix the cream cheese and preserves together and set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat a nonstick skillet on medium heat.
    3. 3
      Spray one side of a tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray, or use butter if you aren't cutting back on fat.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle that side with cinnamon.
    5. 5
      Heat the tortilla just til softened in the skillet cinnamon side down.
    6. 6
      While still in skillet spread the cream cheese mixture on the tortilla and CAREFULLY roll it up being sure not to burn yourself.
    7. 7
      Spray the outsides again with the cooking spray and allow to brown turning to get all sides. (The cheese also gets a chance to melt and get nice and gooey).
    8. 8
      Once plated drizzle hershey's dark chocolate syrup on top and if you want dust a little powdered sugar for garnish.
    9. 9
      Note: It would work with any preserves you had on hand or maybe even pie fillings. Its a pretty versatile concept.
