Sophistication and comfort never tasted so good! With the tangy and tart flavor combination of cranberry and brie, these empanadas will soon become a household favorite. You can make the quick version of this recipe with store-bought cranberry sauce, or get creative and customize it with a homemade version.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • 2 Spread out your pie dough. Using a 3-4" round cookie cutter, make as many circles from each piecrust as possible. You should end up with at least 4 to 5.
  • 3 In the center of each circle, place a teaspoon of cranberry sauce and brie cheese. Fold into a half-moon shape and gently seal the edges.
  • 4 With a floured fork, make creases along the edges to reinforce the closing.
  • 5 Place on a greased cookie sheet and repeat.
  • 6 Beat the egg to create an egg wash. Once all your empanadas have been assembled, using a pastry brush, coat each empanada with the egg wash.
  • 7 Bake for approximately 18 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Serve warm.
