Nutritional Information

Wake Up the Big Apple Empanadas


  • 1-½ tablespoon Granulated Sugar (or Granulated No-calorie Sweetener)
  • ½ tablespoons Cornstarch
  • ⅓ cups Cold Water
  • 1-½ cup Peeled And Chopped Fuji Apples (1-2 Apples)
  • 3 wedges The Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations Cream Cheese Spread Cinnamon Cream 1/3 Less Fat
  • 1 package Refrigerated Seamless Dough Sheet (or Reduced-fat Crescent Roll Dough)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

In a medium nonstick pot on the stove, combine sugar, cornstarch, and 1/3 cup cold water. Add apples and stir well. Bring to medium-high heat and, stirring frequently, cook until sauce has thickened and apples have partially softened, about 6 minutes.

Remove pot from heat and let cool slightly. Thoroughly mix in cheese, until melted. Allow to cool completely.

Roll out dough into a large rectangle of even thickness. Cut lengthwise into two even pieces. Cut each piece widthwise into thirds, leaving you with 6 rectangular pieces of dough. Stretch or roll out each rectangle a bit. Evenly distribute apple mixture among the centers of dough.

Arrange one of the pieces of dough so that the shorter sides are on the right and left. Fold and stretch the lower left corner to meet the upper right corner. Press edges firmly to enclose the mixture. Press edges with fork to crimp and seal. Transfer to the baking sheet and repeat with remaining ingredients.

Bake until dough is golden brown, about 12 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
