Easy Vegetarian Empanadas (with Pie Crust)
are a delicious finger food appetizer that your guests will love! Made with pie crust dough, they are simple, easy and super flaky! Serve with a side of sour cream and dip away!
sour cream for dipping
shredded Kraft Mexican Style Four Cheeses
((Monterey jack & cheddar works too))
canned green chilis
Old El Paso taco seasoning
freshly chopped cilantro
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Whisk your egg in a bowl and set aside.
Mix together your veggie filling in a medium bowl and set aside.
Unroll your pie dough and use a 3½ inch biscuit or cookie cutter to cut out 8 rounds from your pie dough. Brush outer edge of each round lightly with your egg.
Add about 1-1½ tbsp. of filling to each round and close in half. (You want to fill them up as much as you can.) Use a fork to seal the edges together. It's okay if some filling spills out.
Cut 2-3 small slits in the top of empanadas and then brush more egg onto each one.
Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
Serve hot with sour cream.
: 8 empanadas
You can also use your own empanadas dough if you wish. Puff pastry dough would be another option.
