How to make sweet empanada dough

To make the sweet empanada dough for baking use a kitchen machine. Put the flour, salt, and sugar in the kitchen machine and pulse to combine the ingredients.

Then take the butter and slice it into about 15 small pieces of butter. Open the kitchen machine and add the pieces of butter.

Pulse to combine the flour mixture and butter. You will get a crumbly structure.

Now add the egg and drizzle the water in a steady stream while the kitchen machine pulses. You will get a consistent flaky dough.

Take the dough out of the kitchen machine and knead the dough by hand for a couple of minutes. Then wrap the dough in foil.

Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for at least half an hour. Then the dough is ready for use.

Put some flour on a worktop and rolling pin and roll out the dough into a thin sheet. Use an empanada mold or a plate to make the empanada disc.
