I made these thinking they would taste really good, but I was disappointed they did not taste as good as I thought. The green olives make it taste kinda odd. And the filling just did not go well together, like the lemon juice, olives. The thing I enjoyed the most was the pastry.
Not that great,I was disappointed. My husband and I both felt that the ingredients were not something you would want in an Empanada- the egg especially.If I were to make it again i would definitely use different ingredients for the filling.
Halved the recipe and used phyllo instead of puff pastry to cut down on fat. Amazing! It was a light supper for me tonight, but would make a great appetizer as well. Maybe my portions were just bigger, but I scooped out what I felt was a fair serving into each empanada, and ended up with six (again, I halved the recipe). With the phyllo, these were done cooking in 14 minutes.
