Prep time 20 minutes, Cook Time 20 minutes.
1 packet ready made savory-plain puff pastry dough
1 c crumbled Roquefort cheese
24 hazelnuts, crushed
1 egg yolk
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Unroll the pastry dough and cut out 10 circles 2.5inches in diameter with a glass or cookie cutter. Put the cheese and hazelnuts in a bowl and mix together thoroughly with a fork. Add a little sour cream to thin if necessary.
Just before serving:
Put a little cheese filling on one half of each pastry circle. Dampen the edges and fold over; sealing the edges firmly. Whisk the egg yolk with a little water and brush on one side of the pastry parcels. Line a cookie sheet with baking parchment. Put the empanadas on the sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden. Serve hot.
You can vary the cheese and try Bleu and alternate almonds for hazelnuts.
