Cherry Empanadas Recipe

If you have not noticed, since I discovered how easy it was to make empanadas, I can’t stop making them. 

Some of my favorite empanada recipes are Pizza Empanadas, S’mores Empanadas, and Apple Empanadas

My kids loved each of these, so I keep trying to create more empanada recipes so that they can try a variety during their lifetime. 

I decided that after stumbling across a random recipe that had cherries in it, I decided to make Cherry Empanadas. 

Now my kids are not true fans of cherries but at this point, I didn’t care because, for whatever reason, I could not get cherries out of my head after stumbling across that random cherry recipe. 

Since their love of cherries is not as strong as mine, I did not know what to expect.  

Cherry Empanadas are probably the easiest empanada recipe that I have made. 

They seriously only use 5 ingredients! 

  • 1 can of cherry pie filling
  • Goya Empanadas Wraps – Tapas Para Empanadas
  • 2 cups of confectioners sugar 
  • 1/4 cup milk 
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (I forgot this ingredient & step, therefore my empanadas stayed white)

Cherry Empanadas are also very easy to make.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Flour your work surface
  • Lay out a thawed empanada wrap onto surface
  • Add a spoonful of cherries
  • Fold empanada over & close edges with a fork
  • Egg wash the front and the back of the empanada (I forgot this step, therefore my empanadas were not golden brown)
  • Bake for 15 minutes
  • While baking, whisk the sugar and the milk until combined
  • Once the empanadas are done, dip the front and the back of the empanada into the sugar mixuture
  • Lay on a cooling rack
  • Top with remaining cherry mixture/juice

Even though I forgot to eggwash the empanadas, they still tasted great. 

They were made perfect with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream and served warm. 

Cherry Empanadas are probably the easiest empanadas I have made and they were very delicious especially when served warm with ice cream.
