These delicious pastries are perfect for party food. Circles of shortcrust pastry are filled with a vegetable mixture, then baked to perfection. Serve as a snack, appetiser or starter.
I used acorn squash...yellow would have been much soupier...so had to cook it longer. It was very, very good. I look forward to trying other veggies. But this mix of gold and green was beautiful. Only problem...there is no way to get 16 circles out of the pie crust. By stretching we got 12. - 25 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Not too bad. I did do some alterations: Added Mushrooms and red pepper flakes. Make sure to have the mixture really cooled! I put mine in the freezer for 20 min, because I tried to go right from the pan to the crust and the crust fell apart immediately. And I cooked the veggies for a little longer so they were softer. Home-made pie crust would be lots better I think! This is a good starting point recipe. - 10 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made the empanada dough from scratch (and had to bake these longer as a result), but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The filling is delicious! I may make these again, but if I do, we'll come up with some sort of dipping sauce. They seemed a bit dry. - 18 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
