Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
3 Cup(c)  all purpose flour
1 Teaspoon(t)  salt
1 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
1 Teaspoon(t)  paprika
2   large eggs
1/2 Cup(c)  olive oil
2 Tablespoon(T)  medium dry sherry, chilled
4 Tablespoon(T)  ice water


Place flour, salt, baking powder and paprika in a food processor workbowl. Pulse 1 to 2 times to combine. Separate one egg. Add 1 whole egg, 1 egg yolk and olive oil to workbowl and process until combined. Reserve egg white to glaze empanadas. Add sherry and 3 tablespoons ice water, and process for a few more seconds. Mixture will resemble coarse meal and hold together when pinched between thumb and forefinger. Add a few more drops of ice water if necessary. Heat oven to 375° F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Divide dough into 2 equal sized pieces and roll each piece between 2 pieces of waxed paper to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Cut as many 2 1/4 inch circles from the dough as possible. Combine dough scraps, roll out again and cut more circles. Place a slightly rounded teaspoon of filling for small empanadas or about 2 tablespoons of filling for larger empanadas on the bottom half of each pastry circle. Lightly brush bottom edge of dough with a little water to help seal. Fold dough over to form a half circle, pressing firmly along the edges. Use fork tines to finish sealing the edges of each empanada. Place on prepared cookie sheet. In a small bowl whisk remaining egg white until foamy and brush top of each empanada. Prick tops with a fork to allow steam to escape. Bake for 25 minutes until pastry is firm and lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
