  • Arrange pastry discs on a flat work surface. Dab a little water around the rims. Place some ham and Roquefort cubes in the center; fold pastry over and press with a fork to seal.

  • Transfer empanadas to the prepared baking trays. Brush beaten egg over the tops.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

To prevent the Roquefort cheese from leaking out, you can freeze it for 20 to 30 minutes before using it. You can also prepare the empanadas and refrigerate them for 20 to 30 minutes before baking them.
