Strawberry Rhubarb Empanadas

Easy recipe for homemade rhubarb and strawberry empanadas. These sweet dessert empanadas or turnovers are filled with rhubarb and strawberry, baked, and served with whipped cream.


• 25-30 small sweet empanada discs made

   from basic sweet pastry dough

• 3 cups rhubarb, chopped

• 3 cups strawberries, chopped

• 2 tbsp orange juice

• 1 cup sugar

• 1 tbsp cornstarch

• 1 egg, yolk and white separated

   and lightly whisked


• 1/2 cup demerara sugar


  1. Combine the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, orange juice and cornstarch in a large bowl, mix well and let rest for an hour.

  2. Drain the liquid from the strawberries and rhubarb.

  3. To assemble the empanadas spoon the rhubarb and strawberry mixture on the center of the empanada disc.

  4. Brush the edges of the empanada disc with the egg whites.

  5. Fold the empanada discs and seal the edges, use a fork to help seal the empanadas.

  6. Lightly brush the top of the empanadas with the egg yolk; this will give them a nice golden glow when baked.
