Curried Pork Empanadas

kept bytihleigh
recipe bySimply Recipes

Makes 4 to 5 dozen empanada turnovers.

Many parts of this recipe can be made in advance to save time. The dough and the filling can be made 2 days ahead of time. The formed empanadas can be chilled several hours before baking. Once baked, the empanadas can be made a day ahead of time and reheated before serving.

The pastries are best made in batches, keeping the dough and dough rounds chilled in between batches to make them easier to form.
