Now to use the pie crust I made yesterday. Our new house came with two apple trees. I foresee many more apple recipes and me getting really creative with apples being that the Hardworking Husband doesn’t like apples. For now I’m going with something mom made when I was a kid – Apple Empanadas.
- 5 large apples cored and coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 4 Tbsp butter
- Pie Crust
- Oil for frying
In a large skillet combine all filling ingredients. Cook over medium heat for 15 minutes until apples are soft
In a different skillet, heat about an inch of oil to 350. You know the oil is ready when you put the handle of a wooden spoon in the oil and it bubbles.
Roll pie crust out to 1/8 inch thick. Cut 4" circles out of crust.
Place about 1 Tbsp of filling in crust. Fold over. Using a fork seal the edges.
Place empanada in oil. Cook until the crust is golden brown. Remove from oil, place on paper towel to blot.
Enjoy warm. Wonderful served with ice cream.
