    thanks for this instructional piece. i also bought my set years ago and i’m not sure now if we brought it when we moved to our house now — haven’t seen them again. if i do find it, i will use it for the first time, too.

    have a nice day :D

    I didn’t even know you could use the bottom to cut out the dough! I ended up manually folding it and used a fork for design. Time to try it again after so many years! (if i can find it)

    Now I get it! Sheesh.

    We are big on empanada as a family and prepare them for every occasion. We do each empanada manually. I do have these empanada maker in the house, bought them on a trip abroad about a decade ago. We also tried to use them once, but it was messy.

    Now we know how. We just need to find the darn things now.

    Kamusta connie?

    I had an empanada maker like the one in your picture but cant find it anymore. After reading your article, went to the store and found a set of 4 different sizes for $3. No mess and less handling. Thanks Connie.

    Hi ms connie! Meron dn po ako ganito! Simula nung mahook ako sa mga blogs nio i’ve been baking almost evergyday n po…. I started with cookies tapos ung apple cinamon donuts, pero sakin muffin version, tapos po today ung tres leches….. I also tried the pan grilled eggplant…. Your blogs are really great! Im really a rookie in the kitchen kaya trial and error pa ang phase ng baking career ko pero ok lang. Kinakain ng parents ko and brother ko ang binabake ko.. They are even asking me kung ano na nabake ko for the day everytime dmdating sila frm wrk. So tomorrow it’s fried and baked empanada!
