Caramel Apple Empanadas

 Caramel Apple Empanadas


1 (12 ounce) package  frozen harvest apples

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 
(I use apple pie spice)

3 1/2 cups baking mix

1 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted


Thaw apples in microwave at half power 6 to 7 minutes; let stand 3 minutes. Stir together apples and flour.

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a medium skillet over medium heat; add apple mixture, brown sugar, and allspice. Cook, stirring constantly for 4 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Coarsely mash apple mixture, and set aside.

Stir together baking mix and 1 cup whipping cream with a fork until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 3 to 4 times.

Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into 12 (5-inch) squares or circles, I like circles.

Divide apple mixture into 12 servings and place 1 serving in center of each square. Fold 1 side of square over, pressing edges with a fork to seal. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops evenly with 2 tablespoons melted butter.

Bake at 400F for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Or Deep fry which is what I do.
Serve immediately.
Makes 12
