I learned to make empanadas with all kinds of fillings, but these are special with Costa Rican coffee.
Standard pastry dough cut in 5" circles
Cook sliced apples with sugar,cinnamon and a couple of tablespoons of water and a stick of butter.
Let apples cool and fill dough sparingly.
Fold into a half moon and crimp edges.....the real deal has 13 folds
Bake for 45 minutes in a 325 degree oven
Brush with melted butter and allow room temperature
