Goat Cheese Empanadas

In the August Real Simple magazine they had a page full of small bites and this one stood out as a great simple fun recipe to feed to my family and friends. Try this quick and easy appetizer.  Takes three ingredients, 1 package of (2) refrigerated rolled pie crust, 4 ounce package of herbed goat cheese and store-bought corn salsa.  These are so easy and fun to make and better yet they taste great.




The Players!





Using a 3” round cookie cutter, cut out 16 circles from pie crusts.








Divide goat cheese among the circles. 



Lightly dot edges of the dough with water, fold in half,
and press with a fork to seal.

Bake on a baking sheet @ 400 degrees for 12 minutes until lightly browned.  Serve with salsa.
