Peach EmpanadasThis recipe pairs a simple but rich pastry dough with the natural sweetness of peaches. Feel free to try other fruits, such as apples and pears.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Add butter and cream cheese to WildSide jar. Secure lid and press "Pulse" 6–8 times or until butter and cream cheese are blended and creamy. Add salt and 1 cup flour. Secure lid and pulse 6–8 times. Use spatula to scrape sides of jar. Add ½ cup flour, secure lid, and pulse 6–8 times. Use spatula to scrape sides of jar. Add remaining flour, secure lid, and pulse 10–12 times or until all flour is incorporated.
Press dough together to form ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Divide dough into 12 balls, and roll out each into a disk.
Add peaches, sugar, and cinnamon to clean WildSide jar. Secure lid and pulse 3–4 times or until peaches are roughly chopped. Add peach mixture to medium saucepan, and bring to boil. Simmer 10–15 minutes or until mixture thickens.
Add 2 tablespoons peaches to half of each disk of dough. Fold other half of disk over covered half, and pinch edges to seal. For a glossy finish, brush tops of empanadas with egg whites. Bake for 15–20 minutes.
Note: Unbaked dough can be wrapped and frozen for later use.
