The Energy Chef: Guava-Cheese Empanada Cookies by Herb Mesa in The Energy Chef, December 10, 2010
Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas! Nothing is more fun during the Christmas holiday than making cookies with my girls. Cookies aren’t exactly healthy, but since they’re automatically portion-controlled by their size, it’s a great way to indulge sensibly.
Along with more classic cookie recipes, I also make this Herb Mesa Original: Guava and Cheese Empanada Cookies. Latins eat a pastry made with guava and cheese in a puff pastry this time of year, but using empanada skins keeps them smaller and lower-cal. Your friends and family will love this twist on tradition!
