Preparation of Baked Empanadas

Put a spoonful of the stuffing on half of the circle and fold over. Wet the edge with milk, fold over again to make a border. Bake in a 400º oven until cooked and lightly browned.

2. For the stuffing or pino: in a frying pan heat the oil with the paprika and sauté the onions until soft. Add the chili powder, oregano, cumin and salt. Add the ground meat and mix with the onions. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, but do not let brown. Reserve until the next day.

3. Fill the empanadas and add the slices of egg, raisins, and olives divided between the 20 empanadas. Fold over the dough as described above. If you like them shiny, paint with a glaze made of 1 egg beaten with 2 tablespoons of milk before putting them in the oven.
