Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

1 Sheet frozen puff pastry
sheet thawed
1/4 Cup(s) Slivered almonds
1 Cup(s) Apricot preserves
1/8 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
2 Tablespoon(s) Ground almonds, for topping
fruit-filled empanaditas. They're best served straight from the oven.
PREP TIME: 20 minutes. COOKING TIME: 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400F.
Spray a cookie sheet with vegetable cooking spray. On a floured board,
unfold and roll out puff pastry sheet to a 12-inch square. Cut pastry
into 16 3-inch squares. In a small bowl, mix apricot preserves with
almonds and cinnamon. Top each pastry square with a heaping teaspoon
of apricot preserve mixture. Fold squares in half to form triangles.
Brush edges of triangles with water and press edges together with
tines of a fork. Place triangles on prepared baking sheet. Bake
empanaditas for 15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Transfer
to a wire rack and dust with ground almonds. Serve warm. Add sizzle

quick to prepare, these recipes take the stress out of entertaining.
