Raisin & Arroz con Leche Empanadas

If I could wrap anything in an empanada, I would.  They are easy to make, easy to handle and whatever is inside of one, my son is sure enough to eat it.

We love arroz con leche con pasas (rice pudding with raisins) as a fun treat.  But when we are on the road, it’s difficult for a 4-year-old to hold the container and spoon in a moving car without spilling and making a sticky mess.

So I put my thinking cap on and decided to use the last of the ready made pie doughs I had in my freezer and make mini-empanadas for my little one for a weekend snack.

Not only were these the perfect size for his little hands but perfect for dipping.  I can’t wait to make these again for my son’s birthday party.  So easy!
