I made these one 4Th of July and took them to my sisters big 4Th BBQ and I was told by everyone I couldn't come back next year unless I brought them to the BBQ.

Note: you can use the cream cheese with chives if you don't want the green onions I have done both.

To Make Empanada dough: To make the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until it resembles fine bread crumbs.

when all empanada's are a filled then you can fry them two to three at a time till golden brown. serve hot or cold.
Note: If you don't want to deep fat fry the empanada's then you can bake them in the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the empanadas on an oiled baking sheet, beat another egg and brush with the egg. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.
