Sweet and Savory Empanadas

Servings: 12

Ingredients:

1 package (15 ounces) refrigerated pie crust rounds
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Wisconsin mascarpone cheese
Honey

Cooking Directions:

Unfold both pie crust rounds on baking sheet. Combine pineapple, raisins, Monterey Jack , walnuts and cinnamon; mix lightly. Spoon half of mixture onto half of one pie crust round within 1/2 inch of edge. Fold pastry over filling, sealing along edge. Empanada will now be shaped like a half-circle. Repeat with second pie crust round and remaining filling. Cut three small slits in top of each half-circle. Bake at 400° F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown. To serve, cut each empanada into 6 wedges. Serve topped with Mascarpone drizzled with honey, if desired.
