Pumpkin Empanadas

This recipe is strictly a baking empanada. There are other recipes for fried empanadas and they usually come filled with meat, cheese or veggies. Kyle and I have done fried empanadas before and I am sure we will post a recipe for those sometime in the near future.

The great thing about empanadas is that there are so many varieties. I have had them before with different kinds of filling, including: sweet potatoes, pineapple, cherries and apples. However, I have only made the kind that I prefer the most and those are pumpkin empanadas. You can pretty much fill your empanadas with any same filling that you do for pie.

I had someone just tell me the other day that she tried making empanadas and her dough didn’t come out the way she anticipated. I assure you, if you use this dough recipe and follow the directions, your empanadas will come out great. Remember to egg wash them so they will come out golden brown. You may not be able to do these with fresh pumpkin until next year, but you can certainly try them with any other kind of filling.
