How sweet it is…

They say practice makes perfect.  I cooked a lot over the past few days.  I made steamed mussels in a mustard and white wine sauce, chicken stock, chicken parm and I wanted to try the fresh pasta dough that I made for my friends the weekend before and it came out better this time around.  I cut the recipe in half and the dough was easier to manage.  I plan to do this a few more times until I get a better handle of it.  Perfecting my mothers pastry dough has been on my list and I thought I would try that like I did with the pasta – I cut the recipe in half (the recipe is posted in my list of recipes).

I decided to make empanda’s filled with Guava paste and cream cheese :).    I made half of the dough recipe and filled with guava paste and cream cheese.  The amount of guava paste and cream cheese depends on the size of the empanada’s.  I made small ones and used about a teaspoon of each.  Crimp the ends with a fork and brush egg wash over it and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.  It came out good, but I plan to try again this weekend to compare.  Have a good week!
