This is the pastry recipe I'll be using from now on. It's absolutely reliable.

Love the ease of the pastry, but I make the filling without the egg. I add 1/2 green bell pepper,1/2 a red bell pepper, more garlic (YUM!)and 2 to 3 chopped basil leaf (fresh if @ hand)1 can of tomato sauce ,OH! and skip the cheese. If you want dessert use the same pastry but fill with guava paste and cream cheese (but thats another recipe)This would be cuaban empanadas what I just decribed.

Made these exactly as the recipe directed. Loved the ease of the pastry, and making these, but found the meat filling a bit bland without the salsa. I will be adding a bit of salsa next time I make these instead of the tomatoes just to put a bit of zip into the filling.
