These are delicious golden pastries stuffed with cuman scented sweet potatoes. The pastry is from JillAZ, see "Spinach Empanadas". I tried out this filling because I needed an additional vegetarian option for a wedding. While these do take a bit of planning ahead because the pastry and the filling have to chill, I have spread out the steps over several days. Once cooked and cooled, these beauties can be frozen and reheated at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. These are great with Cuban mojo dipping sauce.
