Baked Pumpkin Empanadas



These pumpkin empanadas (empanadas de calabaza) carry a sweet, rich flavor and have a moist crust. It's a panaderia-style recipe that has been perfected for over 50 years.

The empanada dough begins with a "spice tea" that provides both moisture and flavor. The dough is then rolled into a disc and stuffed with a pumpkin and spice filling before baking.



Unlike a typical pastry dough, this pumpkin empanada recipe includes piloncillo (brown sugar), anise, cloves, and cinnamon in a traditional Tex-Mex style.

Pumpkin empanadas are a favorite throughout the fall and winter. They are the perfect "pan dulce" to enjoy with coffee. Get the recipe by clicking the button below!
