Apple-Oaxaca Cheese Empanadas

Fill your home with the warm delicious smell of apple and cinnamon by making these amazingly delicious Apple-Oaxaca Cheese Empanadas! They are very easy to make and combines fresh apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and Oaxaca cheese, wrapped in a flaky puff pastry, and drizzled with a sweet Crema Mexicana glaze. Honestly, you’ll be feeling happy after making these empanadas and the reward of eating them is even more amazing!

With Easter season, there is an incredible amount of comfort food, candy and desserts, which we all love. So, I came up with the idea of making these empanadas for an Easter brunch! How could we not love apple empanadas and take every excuse not to eat them? They are so good I could eat an empanada at every meal, including dinner! Is that just me?

I’ve also bumped the flavor by adding Cacique® Oaxaca Cheese to the filling. I use Gala and Granny apples because they are crispy and firm and doesn’t make the empanadas soggy.

These Apple-Oaxaca Cheese Empanadas are the perfect addition to any Easter Brunch table, a weekend treat or an afternoon snack. Oh! Just one more thing: eat these still warm from the oven, a moment of pure delight.
