CARAMEL APPLE EMPANADAS
Taco Bell Copycat Recipe
1 (12 oz) package Stouffer's frozen harvest apples
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
3 1/2 cups baking mix
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
Thaw apples in microwave at half power 6 to 7 minutes; let stand 3 minutes. Stir together apples and flour. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a medium skillet over medium heat; add apple mixture, brown sugar, and allspice. Cook, stirring constantly for 4 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Coarsely mash apple mixture, and set aside.
Stir together baking mix and 1 cup whipping cream with a fork until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 3 to 4 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into 12 (5-inch) squares.
Divide apple mixture into 12 servings and place 1 serving in center of each square. Fold 1 side of square over, pressing edges with a fork to seal. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops evenly with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
