Apple Cinnamon Empanadas

Apple Cinnamon Empanadas

Sweet cinnamon pairs up with popular apples in this tender, tasty Apple Cinnamon Cake. Use cinnamon sticks for enhanced flavor. Cinnamon is easy to add to food you already eat and - as you are most likely well aware - is known for pairing with apples.

Ingredients

2 packages Stouffer's harvest apples, cooked according to package directions, chilled
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 36-count package frozen roll dough, defrosted according to package directions
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter

Directions

Lightly grease 2 baking sheets. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla extract in medium bowl; mix until smooth. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.

Place dough for 1 roll on lightly floured surface; roll into 4-inch circle. Spoon about 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture and 1 tablespoon escalloped apples onto lower half; brush edges with milk. Fold dough in half; crimp edges with fork. Repeat with remaining dough.

Brush each empanada with butter; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Place on prepared baking sheets. Set aside.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown; serve warm.

Recipe makes 36 servings.

Nutrition Nibbles

Cinnamon: Both ground and stick forms are equally healthy, but sticks have a longer shelf life (one year, compared with 6 months for ground). No need to grind your own. Pre-ground store-bought cinnamon is as good as fresh ground and saves the hassle.
