Apple Pie Empanadas

I made these bad boys for the apple competition at the North Carolina State Fair and from what I hear the judges loved them  but I should have probably read the directions when they clearly said all entries should be a non-dessert.

Apple Empanadas

¼ cup butter

3 tablespoons of flour

½ cup white sugar

½ cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons water

6 Granny Smith apples (diced)

2 Packages Frozen Goya Empanadas Disc (thawed)


¼ cup butter

1 ¼ cup powder powdered sugar

2 tablespoons milk

Melt butter in a sauce pan add white, brown sugar and water. Stir well, bring to a simmer and add apples.

Continue to stir apple mixture and add flour. Simmer the mixture until it thickens and set aside to cool

Add some apple mixture to the center of the goya disk and fold over to make a half circle. Use a fork to press the edge of the empanadas closed and repeat until mixture is gone or all the disk is used.

Heat oil in a deep fryer or large enough pot to cover empanadas with oil. Fry in batches and set aside on a rack or paper towel to drain.


In a saucepan melt butter over low heat and add milk. Simmer will stirring then add powdered sugar. Stir glaze until smooth.

Use a spoon to apply glaze to each empanada

Eat empanadas warm
