Choc Chip Sweet Potato Empandas

Super easy, I'll share the recipe if anyone wants :)




Update:
Here's my super easy recipe for above:
I pinched every corner on these little pies but here it goes. I bought ready made empanada disc doughs (my local Kroger grocery store sells them)
1 lg sweet potato (wash, dice and boil until tender)
brown sugar
chopped walnuts
mini marshmallows
mini chocolate chips
1 beaten egg
cinnamon and sugar (mix to sprinkle on empanadas)
When your sweet potatoes are done, drain and skin them. Put them in a big bowl and add, 1 tbsp of brown sugar, chopped walnuts, choc chips and a hand full of marshmallow (I did about two per disc)- mix them and taste them. Add more of what needs to be added for your taste. Using the pre-made disc, scoop a tbsp of filling into middle of dough. Using your finger moistened in water, run it all around edges of dough to seal it. Close it and crimp it using fork tines to keep it from seeping out.
Now using your beaten egg, brush on outside of empanadas. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mix. Using a sharp knife cut in 3 small slices to let steam out.
My recipe only made about 12 small empanadas. Bake in a 375º oven foe about 15 minutes or until they are golden. That's it.
