Fruit Empanadas


I previously posted a blog on some delicious Cheeseburger Empanadas. Today I found another recipe for these tasty treats, slightly larger in size, which made them all the more enjoyable for anytime of the day, even breakfast. 


- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup cold butter, softened slightly
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbs cottage cheese
- Fruit preserves/filling (any flavor)
- Betty Crocker Icing 

Place flour in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in cool butter and mix until the flour is crumbly. Blend in cottage cheese until mixture forms a ball. Chill dough for 1 hour. Roll out dough in flour to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut circles out of the dough (approximately 4 1/2  to 5 inches in diameter). Place on slightly greased cookie sheet and place a spoonful of fruit filling in the middle of the dough. Fold over dough and seal using a fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool and top with 1 teaspoon of icing (if desired).
