  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cook and stir fruit, nuts and honey in saucepan on medium-low heat 3 min. Remove from heat.
  • Roll out pie crust on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into 18 rounds with 3-inch cookie cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Spoon 1-1/2 tsp. fruit mixture, then 1/2 tsp. cream cheese onto centre of each pastry round. Brush edges of pastry rounds with egg; fold in half. Seal edges with fork. Cut small slit in top of each with sharp knife; place on foil-covered baking sheet. Brush with any remaining egg.
  • Bake 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown.


Substitute raisins for the mixed dried fruit.

Make Ahead

Assemble empanadas as directed. Place in airtight container or resealable freezer-weight plastic bag; freeze up to 3 months. When ready to serve, bake in 350°F oven 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown. (No need to thaw before baking.)


Substitute almonds for the pecans.


These flaky empanadas are equally delicious whether served warm or at room temperature.
