As you read a couple of days ago, I really love Argentinian empanadas. "Maybe we can make them ourselves," I thought after our last delivery, and that's exactly what we did yesterday.
I've documented the full process in an article about making empanadas, but in the meantime, here's a photo of the end result!
Did they work? Were they tasty? You bet! If you've got the time you should give it a go yourself.
You might have problems finding the right pastry though if you don't live in Argentina. You really want pastry that's similar to that used for meat pies but slightly more bread-like (i.e. not pastry that puffs up a lot when cooked.) Also you'll need to cut the pastry into circles that are about 10 to 15cm in diameter (ok, make it 12.5cm! That's just under 5 inches for those of you up north).
