really good but some things i added i didn't have any creme fraiche. , added orange zest and squeezed half a orange into the batter. im leaving it as is because it was so good but I would use somethings better.
I used baguette bread with red stripes and it was the best thing EVER!!!! Served it with a giant slice of provolone which made it even better. Then I just made my own version of the classic empanadas--savory, sweet, spicy, and a little bit tangy. It's not quick and easy--but it's totally worth trying. I will definately make it again!!!
