Yummy! These are easy to make, but it does take time. We used Neufchatel cheese b/c that's all I buy and it still tasted great. We refrigerated overnight. Also, we didn't roll these out. I cut the chilled dough in pieces and then rolled those in balls and flattened with a glass. I did have to flatten a little more by hand. We rolled the empanadas in sugar before baking and that turned out great! About half of the empanadas with strawberry jam leaked, but I probably put too much in those. I also made a few with peach preserves and none of those leaked. The preserves were not so runny so that might have something to do with it. In any case, both flavors were delicious. And the crust is delicious so it was okay that some leaked. My 10 yr old made these with me, and even my 9 and 4 yr olds got in on the action. Fun family recipe if you're not in a hurry. The oldest was taking these in for a cultural project at school and we had never made them before, so very happy that they came out so well. Great recipe!! We're going to try wiith savory fillings next time
