Ingredients

BAKED APPLE PIE EMPANADAS

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 medium Granny Smith apples peeled and diced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 pack frozen pastry rounds or use your favorite dough recipe
  • 1 egg beaten

SPICED RUM GLAZE

  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon spiced rum

Instructions

  • In a bowl, mix ground cinnamon and sugar together. Save about 2 tablespoons for later. Toss diced apples with the cinnamon sugar then add butter, brown sugar, and lime juice. Gently mix everything together.
  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. In a pastry round, add one tablespoon of the filling into the center of the circle, fold, and seal with a fork.
  • Place the empanadas on a lightly greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart, brush with the egg wash, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • In a bowl, stir powdered sugar and spiced rum together then drizzle over empanadas. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
