Dessert, Breakfast, and Pie IN ONE!

by Kathryn Baldwin

If I want to learn to cook like a Mexican goddess, I should learn to cook meat. Ha! Baby steps.

I found my next Mexican food cooking adventure in the back of my cookbook: Fruit Filled Empanadas. I did not expect that eating this warm, Mexican hot pocket would feel as good as I felt as a kid when I begged for those mini apple pies from McDonalds. Except, where McDonalds pies use flavor from a chemically concocted potion made in the worlds largest flavor company factory (Flavors & Fragrances) in New Jersey, this pocket of love was made by my inspired labor and lonely Saturday night. They’re like dessert, breakfast, and pie all in one: I think I could make these once a week…and I know my family wouldn’t complain. Not to mention, unlike McDonalds’ products, you could probably venture to eat the whole batch without a heart attack interrupting halfway through.
