Flaky, Flavorful Empanadas to Get Your Hands on

Empanadas, also known as pastelillos, pastelitos, empanadillas, and hand pies, are a popular Latin American hand-held pastry that can be made sweet or savory. They come in many different shapes and sizes, though traditionally they are baked or fried into half-moon shapes with crimped edges. While they’re small and great for use as appetizers or dessert, depending on the filling, they are also enjoyed as main courses, too!
