I would like to make a suggestion. Use lentles and vegetables for a vegetarian filling
The dough was really good, i did have to add more water to make it come together.
quick, easy to make, easy to work with. made 12 "discs" with re-rolling scraps after cutting. so fast I am about to make another batch now.
I used this recipe for my first ever attempt at empanadas. Turned out great exactly as written! Kids loved them too. Thank you for sharing.
