Ingredients

  • Empanada Dough
  • 3 Granny Smith apple
  • 1 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Recipe Directions:

Prepare Empanada Dough as directed. Mix apples, cheese, brown sugar and 1 tsp. of the cinnamon in small bowl. Preheat oven to 400°F. Shape dough into 24 balls, using about 1 Tbsp. of the dough for each ball. Press each ball into 4-inch round. Spoon about 2 Tbsp. of the apple mixture onto center of each round. Fold right edge over the filling on an angle; repeat with left edge. Take bottom edge and fold up to join in the center forming a triangle. Place triangles, seam sides down, on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Light brush empanadas with water. Combine remaining 1 tsp. cinnamon and granulated sugar; sprinkle evenly over empanadas. Bake 18 min. or until golden brown. Serve warm or cooled, topped with whipped topping.
