    Fill each with 1 tablespoon of dulce de leche and 1 of cream cheese, and cover each with another disc on top. Seal the edges with a fork.

    If you prefer to fry them, heat a saucepan with enough vegetable oil. Fry the empanadas on medium-high heat. Transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
