How do I make it ?
Select All
Step 1
Cook onions in dressing in large frypan on medium-high heat until tender. Add carrots; cook 5 min. more, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir in spinach then cool. Stir in cheese.
Step 2
Prepare pie crust mix according to package directions. Roll into 1/16-inch thickness. Cut into 4-inch circles. Spoon 1 Tbsp. spinach mixture onto centre of each dough circle.
Step 3
Beat egg; brush onto outer edges of each circle. Fold dough in half to cover filling; press edges together to seal completely. Make a small cut in top of each empanada. Place on baking sheet; brush with any remaining egg.
Step 4
Bake at 375°F for 15 min. or until golden brown.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Substitute 1/2 lb. ground chicken, pork or beef, cooked and drained, for the spinach and carrots. Add to the filling with the cheese.
Make it Easy
Cut 4 inch circles from thawed, frozen pie shells instead of mixing your own pastry.
