- Try to roll the dough as thinly as possible.Cut about a 1/4 inch slice of guava paste and an equal slice of cream cheese and place them in the center of the half closest to you. Fold the back half over the filling and seal the dough by pressing down on the border. Trim the ends, take a fork to the border to create a crinkled seal.Place the finished empanada on a floured surface.
- Heat cooking oil until it is about 375 degrees and fry the empanadas (don’t crowd the empanadas) until they are golden brown. Best served immediately.
