- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 pack frozen pastry rounds or use your favorite dough recipe

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.
