  • Prepare Empanada Dough as directed. Combine apples, cheese, brown sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.
  • Heat oven to 400°F. Shape dough into 24 balls, using about 1 Tbsp. for each. Flatten each ball to 4-inch round. Spoon about 2 Tbsp. apple mixture onto center of each round. Fold right edge of dough, at an angle, over filling; repeat with opposite edge of dough, then fold up bottom edge to form triangle. Press edges together to seal; place, seam sides down, on parchment-covered baking sheet. Brush lightly with water.
  • Mix remaining cinnamon and granulated sugar; sprinkle over empanadas.
  • Bake 18 min. or until golden brown. Cool slightly. Serve topped with COOL WHIP.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelente receta. Excelente receta. A toda mi familia les encantó. Es muy fácil de hacerla y el sabor de la fruta con el queso es delicioso. Yo no estaba tan segura de mezclar el queso con la fruta y el azúcar moreno pero realmente quedo riquísimo. La masa quedó muy suave y manejable. Reemplacé la manteca de cerdo por mantequilla ya que no tenía la manteca. Quedo deliciosisisisísima! Recomiendo hacerla con los niños ya que mis hijos se divirtieron mucho. Gracias Kraft por las maravillosas recetas.
