Living in San Antonio, I would always order empanadas from the ladies that made and sold them at Market Square

I always wanted to make them for my family but thought that they would be too hard or impossible for me to figure out. 

Little did I know, after a little bit of research, that they were one of the easiest recipes that I have made my family in a very long time. 

I recently made my family Pepperoni Pizza Empanadas, which I hope to share soon. My kids loved them, so I decided to make them a sweet treat that I hoped they would fall in love with. 

Cinnamon Apple Empanadas

What I love about making empanadas is that not only are they easy to make but they use very few ingredients. 

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, diced
  • Cinnamon/Sugar mix (optional)
  • Empanada wraps (found in your grocer’s freezer)- thawed
  • Oil for frying

The steps to make Cinnamon Apple Empanadas are simple. 

  • Peel & dice 3 Granny Smith apples
  • Melt butter in a saucepan
  • Once melted, stir in the sugar & the cinnamon 
  • Let dissolve
  • Add apples & boil on low until apples are tender
  • Remove from heat
  • Spoon a tablespoon of apple mixture onto one half of each empanada wrap
  • Fold the other half over & use a fork to seal the open the edges
  • Sprinkle with a cinnamon/sugar mixture on each side (optional) 
  • Pro Tip- I seal the edges with a fork on each side
  • Heat oil
  • Once the oil is heated, add the empanadas, brown on each side & remove
  • Place on a paper towel to remove excess oil
  • Serve alone or with ice cream.

Once the Cinnamon Apple Empanadas have cooled, serve them alone or topped with ice cream. 

I drizzled some of the remaining melted sugar/cinnamon mixtures onto the empanada and the ice cream. It turned out fabulous and my girls loved it.
