Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very 'forgiving' dough. a very 'forgiving' dough. I've made empanadas - I bake them, never fry - and sweet filled turnovers with this dough recipe. Next will try 'mini chicken pot pies' using this dough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy recipe, I substituted veg oil for the lard. Super easy recipe, I substituted veg oil for the lard. Dough was left greasy, I sprinkled flour (on greasy dough)and mixed until it became more "dough like". I then added my favorite fillers (sweet potato, apple) you can also use strawberry and blueberries or whatever you like. Cooked for 18 min. It was a big hit with my kids! I took some to a family party and it was a big hit there too! I definitely recommend this recipe. I will definitely make this again!

I searched your site and a minute later he had what he needed. Thanks again Kraft! P.S. It tastes great, and is really easy to make in a food processor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I forgot this in my last review. I forgot this in my last review. I used butter flavored crisco instead of lard. While it still has 0.5 g of trans fat per serving, it's better than lard! I wonder how these would do baked in the oven, since I fried them??
