  • Roll out dough into a large rectangle on a lightly floured work surface. Cut into 16 squares. Place 2 tablespoons apple pie filling and 1 teaspoon caramel topping on each square. Fold into triangles and seal edges with a fork.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 370 degrees F (187 degrees C). Deep-fry empanadas until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per batch. Transfer to a paper towel-lined platter to drain. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
