Pumpkin Spice Empanadas
To celebrate our PS love, we came up with another delicious use of the Hungry Fan® Pumpkin Spice Fangating™ Blend. We give you another take on Pumpkin Spice Empanadas. And take it from us…they are mighty tasty!
1 box pre-made puff pastry dough
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 ½ teaspoons Hungry Fan® Pumpkin Spice Fangating™ Blend
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. Cream
1 egg beaten
1 tbsp. water
Thaw pastry dough in fridge according to box directions.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium sized bowl, combine pumpkin, sugars, spice mix, and cream.
Cut out 4 circles of pastry dough (you should use up the full sheet). Gently pull out the edges of each circle to make slightly larger and to make room for the filling.
Place an overflowing tablespoon of filling into the center of each circle.
Wet a finger with water and run around the circumference of the circle where the dough will be sticking together to form a pocket.
Fold over one side of the dough to encase the filling, making half circles.
Pinch the edges of dough together by pressing down with a fork along the edge, making sure to seal the empanada all the way around.
Make an egg wash by adding 1 tablespoon of water to beaten egg.
Lightly brush mixture of the top of each pastry.
Bake for 20 mins or until the tops are golden brown. Serve!
