I decided to make Empanada Pop-Tarts.
Empanada's are not healthy by any means. I made some revisions.
Usually I make Empanada's by rolling the dough out, putting a small round plate on top, cut around it, put pie filling inside it, and roll it up to bake. I wanted to use my Sunsella Pastry Scraper and Chopper, so I rolled out the dough, cut it in rectangles. It was great because the cutter has a ruler right on it.
I changed up the ingredients from my original recipe a bit:
- Coconut Oil replaced Shortening
- Coconut Sugar replaced White Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour replaced some of the All Purpose Flour
Mica helped me make the dough. I could have used a little more water, to get the dough thinner. It's been years, since I've made Empanada's. Isaak helped me put the blueberry pie filling in the centers, and pushed the edges down with a fork. They were a bit messy with the kids helping, but not bad!
I thought they turned out good!
You can mix up powdered sugar and water to pour on top of them when they are done. I'm not used to a whole bunch of sugar, and I think the filling is enough.
You can also use the Sunsella Pastry Scraper & Chopper Review to help clean up your mess. I scrapped all the excess flour off the counter after rolling out the dough.
It's sharp enough to chop up fruits and veggies. It works great for scraping cut up veggies in to a pan, or cut up fruit into a bowl.
What would you use the Sunsella Pastry Scraper & Chopper for?
