The Secret To Handheld Desserts Is Your Empanada Press
Putting your handheld empanada press to work on handheld sweet treats is the best way to save time and savor the flavor. The hand pie possibilities are seemingly endless.
It's important to consider the crust. Choose a crust with enough structural integrity to handle filling and crimping, which is ideally a traditional "double crust" pie.
While traditional sweet Spanish empanadas usually contain apples, the variety of fruit, cream, or other fillings to place inside is only limited by your imagination.
You aren't limited to just empanadas. Any pie with a custard filling and thick crust can also be easily translated into an empanada format.
