Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375º F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the raisins, ketchup, cinnamon, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Using a 2½-inch round cookie cutter, cut out circles from the piecrusts. Divide the beef mixture among the circles, brush the edges with water, fold in half, and press with a fork to seal. Transfer to a baking sheet and brush with the egg. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Put the sour cream in a small bowl and sprinkle with the lime zest. Serve with the empanadas.

These empanadas are really tasty and they make a great appetizer. I made the sour cream dipping sauce and also served them with some queso. Definitely a keeper -- love the fact that they can be made from ready-made pie crusts and baked off in a matter of minutes. Made for Spring PAC, 2014.
