Made this for my boyfriend’s birthday and he LOVED IT! He said it reminded him of the Taco Bell empanadas but waaay better! -@sassypants
Toss apples with lemon juice. In a saucepan, stir together the apples and caramel over medium heat.
Simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes. Stir in the vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Remove and allow to cool.
Place the apple filling in the center. Fold the dough over the filling and press the edges together to seal completely.
Preheat oven to 375˚F. In a bowl, beat together egg and water. Brush over the tops of the empanadas. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
