Cookies & Cream Empanadas


Servings: 16

10 to 12 chocolate wafer cookies

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

¼ cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for topping  

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon heavy cream

2 eggs, divided

1 package pie crust dough (2 sheets)


1. Preheat the oven to 450℉/230℃. 

2. In a food storage bag, crush the cookies to form coarse crumbs. 

3. Combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, heavy cream and 1 egg in a mixing bowl.  Blend until creamy with a hand mixer.

4. Fold in the cookie crumbs.

5. Using a glass or round cookie cutter, cut circles out of the pie crust.  Fill each round with a small amount of the filling.  Fold over and press to seal.  Line up on a parchment-lined baking sheet. 

6. Beat the remaining egg and brush each empanada with egg wash.  Sprinkle with sugar.

7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

8. Enjoy! 


Note:  There may be some extra filling. This could make a few individual cheesecakes in muffin tins!
