How to make dessert empanadas with blueberry

Make the empanada dough for frying or use store-bought. Cut out the empanada shells using an empanada mold.

Now take a bowl and add the cream cheese and stir it loose with a spoon. Add the blueberries and stir the blueberries through the cream cheese.

If you want it sweeter add sugar to taste. Want to use lemon juice for freshness now is the time to add.

Take about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture and put it in the middle of the empanada discs.

Fold the empanadas and cover the filling with the dough. Seal the edges of the empanada twisting the edges close.

Then preheat vegetable oil in a big pot until hot (about 350℉).

Fry the blueberry empanadas for about 1 minute per side. Do not crowd the pan and leave some space for the empanadas to brown.

Take them out of the pan and drain on kitchen paper and cool slightly before serving.
