Prepare empanadas as directed. Place on parchment paper-covered baking sheet; cover. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight. Cook as directed. To freeze, layer empanadas in airtight container between sheets of wax paper or parchment paper. Freeze empanadas up to 2 weeks; thaw completely and pat dry before cooking as directed.
Make it Easy
Substitute 1 pkg. (17.3 oz.) frozen puff pastry, thawed, for the Empanada Dough. Roll each pastry sheet into 15x10-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface. Cut out six (5-inch) squares from each sheet. Fill and seal as directed, forming triangles instead of semi-circles. Bake at 400°F for 18 to 20 min. or until pastry is golden brown. Makes 6 servings, two empanadas each.
