These delicious apple empanadas (turnovers) require only a handful of ingredients and have the flavor of apple pie with a dash of spice.
The apple mixture combines flavors of brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and a dash of ground cloves. For the best results, we use Granny Smith apples.
The art of rolling empanada dough is easy with this scratch recipe. The crust is both light and flaky (but not crumbly) after baking.
Baked apple empanadas are the perfect afternoon treat (called merienda). Serve some with your favorite cup of coffee or caramel sauce.
