Daring Bakers - Empanada Gallega

Patri of the blog, Asi Son Los Cosas, was our September 2012 Daring Bakers’ hostess and she decided to tempt us with one of her family’s favorite recipes for Empanadas! We were given two dough recipes to choose from and encouraged to fill our Empanadas as creatively as we wished!

Despite all the exclamation marks, this recipe was OK, but not exciting.   I filled my empanadas, made with wholewheat flour dough, with pie apple mixed with cinnamon and a little sugar:

The end result was probably a little healthier than I would have liked.  Maybe I would have liked this better if I had used a savoury filling.  However, as it was, I was uninspired by the end result.

To see what other Daring Bakers made, visit the slide show when it's the 27th on the East Coast of America.

I've never seen one large empanada before. Great post!

I totally went the apple route too :-)
I couldn't get into a savory filling.

I tried making the empanada with a sweet filling but alas it didn't work so I didn't end up posting it :(

Wow, I have never seen a whole big empanada like this, interesting. And I have never had a fruit one either. Would be fun to come up with my own filling, not sure if I would go savory or to see what you choose and that slice looks good.

My one and only empanada attempt was a sweet version with canned apple pie filling but I made individual ones with a chocolate drizzle. Tasted good and making it them was fast.
