    1 c. cooked mashed pumpkin
    1/4 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
    1/4 c. raisins
    1/4 c. chopped nuts
    1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    2 c. unsifted flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 c. Mazola butter
    6 to 7 tbsp. cold water
    1 qt. (about) Mazola corn oil
    2 tbsp. confectioners' sugar
    1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

    In bowl stir together first five ingredients. In another bowl mix flour and baking powder with pastry blender or 2 knives. Cut in butter until coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle water over mixture while tossing to blend well. Divide in thirds.
    On lightly floured surface roll each out to 1/16 to 1/8 thickness, cut in 3 inch circles. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin mixture onto lower half of each circle. Moisten edge. Fold top half over filling. Seal well with foil.

    Pour corn oil into heavy saucepan (3 quart) filling no more than 1/3 full. Heat over medium heat to 375 degr

  • Never even heard of them, but they sound delicious...minus the rasins.

  • The only empanadas I've made are using the Goya Discos & I have only made the savory kind with a meat filling. If it were me I'd do the pumkin just like you do for pie & fill a disco with it but, I tend to take short cuts :)
