If frying, heat the oil in a frying pan and add the empanadas, turning to fry each side until golden brown. If baking, pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange empanadas on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until golden. If baking you can also brush the empanadas with an egg wash to give them a golden crust.
Cooked empanadas can also be refrigerated or frozen and reheated in the microwave.
