Cream Cheese and Apricot Empanadas

Peruvians love all kinds of empanadas: filled with meat, chicken, aji de gallina, lomo saltado, artichokes, spinach, cheese, and more. Sweet empanadas, however, are not something we see too often, except for the odd apple empanada in just a few places. There is no real reason for this, and we refuse to settle for only savory empanadas. Here is a sweet version that I created for Que Rica Vida, with cream cheese and apricots, inspired by the guava and cream cheese pastelitos from my childhood.

  1. Qué buena combinación. Es verdad, no es muy común ver empanadas dulces. Mi mami nos hacía unas empanadas fritas rellenas con queso fresco y espolvoreadas con azúcar común, deliciosas…ya me provocaste…le voy a pedir que me las haga 🙂

  2. Seria posible que pongan la receta de Cream Cheese and Apricot empanadas, esto en el site y noesta la receta solo la foto de las empanada. Ojala me pudiese responder a la brevedad ya que quiero prepararlas para un cumpleaños…Gracias!!!
