    Cheese Empanadas

    I found another recipe in my files. Hope you like it.

    For the Dough:
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    6 tbls vegetable shortening or margarine
    1 egg yolk
    3-4 tbls ice water

    For the Filling:
    1/3 cup grated Swiss Cheese
    1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
    1/4 tsp paprika
    1 egg white, lightly beaten

    For the Glaze:
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    1 tsp water

    To prepare dough:
    In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Using 2 knives or a pastry blender, cut in the shortening so the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the egg yolk.

    Add water, a tablespoon at a time, stirring with a fork until a dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead for 1 minute. Roll the dough 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into 3 inch squares.

    To prepare filling:
    Ina bowl, combine the ingredients, then set aside.

    Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly butter a baking sheet and set aside.

    To make empanadas:
    Place about 2 teaspoons of the filling into each square. Fold the squares in half to form triangles, and seal the edges by crimping with a fork. Place the empanadas on the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

    To make glaze:
    In a small bowl, beat the egg and water together.

    Brush the tops of the empanadas with the glaze. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes on a rack before serving
