Substitute raisins for the mixed dried fruit.
Assemble empanadas as directed. Place in airtight container or resealable freezer-weight plastic bag; freeze up to 3 months. When ready to serve, bake in 350°F oven 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown. (No need to thaw before baking.)
These flaky empanadas are equally delicious whether served warm or at room temperature.
