Step 1

Dsing a 9cm round cookie cutter, cut 18 discs from pastry.

Step 2

Place 1 teaspoon of cheese in centre of each disc, brush edges with egg and fold to enclose and pinch edges to seal.

Step 3

Heat enough oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over high heat to reach a depth of 5cm (oil is ready when a cube of bread crisps quickly with absorbing any oil).

Step 4

Deep-fry the empanadas, in batches, for 2 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.

Step 5

Drain on paper towel.
