In true confession, I’m a total creature of habit. From french apple tarts to apple butter, I tend to make the same tried-and-true recipes each season.

This Fall, I was determined to spice things up in the kitchen. I think it’s safe to say that I passed the test with these homemade apple empanadas (using this recipe from Global Table Adventure).

If you’re a crust person like me, you are going to want to eat the entire batch of these little handheld treats. They’re like inside out pies, filled with ooey gooey apple pie filling.

Take it from me: these empanadas are delicious warm or cold. Or covered in vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce or… well, you get the idea.

New Thanksgiving tradition? Just saying.
