Prepare the Empanadas

  1. Mix cheese, sugar, pudding powder and vanilla. Put one teaspoon of filling in the center of your dough and pinch closed. Press with a fork to seal extra tight.

  2. Heat oil till it measures 350 degrees Fahrenheit on a thermometer, or until it’s hot enough that when you put in an empanada it starts to bubble.

  3. Fry empanadas until golden and drain on paper towels.

Prepare the Sugar Syrup Glaze

  1. Put sugar and water into a small pot over medium-high heat. Let it come to a boil and mix until sugar is fully dissolved. Add rose water.


  1. Drizzle syrup over warm empanadas and garnish with pistachios, coconut, and some cinnamon.
