Expert Tips

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in onion and garlic. Cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add shrimp; cook about 2 minutes longer or until shrimp turn pink.
  • 2 Stir in tomatoes, cilantro, marjoram and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or until liquid is evaporated. Set aside to cool.
  • 3 Unroll pie crusts on work surface. Using 5-inch round cutter, cut 4 rounds from each crust. Brush edges of rounds with egg.
  • 4 Stir cheese into cooled shrimp filling. Place about 3 tablespoons shrimp filling on half of each round. Fold dough over filling, pressing down to seal. Crimp edges with fork.
  • 5 Place empanaditas on ungreased cookie sheets. Beat remaining egg and milk with whisk, and brush tops of empanaditas with egg wash; sprinkle with sesame seed.
  • 6 Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
