It's great fun to make sweet versions of savory favorites, like these incredibly delicious dessert empanadas. The easy filling is made by melting milk chocolate and mixing it with heavy cream; let it cool a bit before spooning over the pastry shells…
A fork makes easy work of sealing the edges of the dough and creating the trademark impressions. Here, the pastries are also sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar before baking, for extra crunch and flavor.
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Melt the chocolate in a pan or in the microwave.
- Add the cream to soften the chocolate. Mix well.
