Couple of weeks back,when a Sprigs representative contacted me asking if I could develop a recipe for them, I was excited. The product I had to work with was Banana & Caramel Banoffee Topping & Spread. The first thing that came to my mind was Empanadas. In case you are wondering what they are, Empanada is a stuffed pastry which can be fried as well as baked. The fillings of Empanadas can be either sweet or savoury.

I had been thinking of making Empanadas for a while. What better time to try it out !  I made the dough following the basic recipe. Once that was kept in the refrigerator, I set about with the filling. Though the Banoffee spread tastes good by itself, I wanted to add something extra. That’s when I spotted the fruits in my pantry. Next was the mixing and tasting session. After trying out a few combinations, I zeroed in on the apples.

The empanadas turned out really AMAZING !!! The flaky covering combined with the Not- so-sweet Apple filling is definitely a Winner.
