Cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes until mushroom juice is released and the mixture is quite dry. Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes. Stir in cheese, ham, tarragon, lemon juice, and Tabasco.

Place sppon full of mixture in wonton wrapper.  When wonton wrappers are complete crimp with a fork and brush egg mixture on them . Bake in oven at 350 for 12 minutes or golden brown.


Additional notes

Baked empanadas can be frozen. Heat oven to 350°. Place frozen empanadas on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until hot. If empanadas have been refrigerated, reheat for 7 to 10 minutes, until warm to the touch.
