Empanada Dough

Explored lots of these on the web and they all seem to have WAY to much lard, grease, butter, etc.Most recipes of this quantity state 8 servings but I’m seeing 4.Here’s my take.


  1. 2 cups flour
  2. 6 tbsp lard, grease, butter, etc
  3. 1/2 cup water, beer, milk, buttermilk, etc
  4. 1/2 tsp turmeric
  5. 1/2 tsp cumin
  6. 1/2 tsp coriander
  7. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, optional
  8. 1 beaten egg for sealing the edges
  9. Oil for frying


  1. Don’t forget the egg wash for the perimeter! I’m using a 6″ bowl and you can fill with about 2 tbsp of filling.
