My Rainbow Cutlery:

I am getting into easter recipes but not just classic stuff, so we’re starting with Beef Empanadas which I discovered are a typical Easter food in South America.
The dough is surprisingly not fathead, or at least not properly. Because of Almond Flour and Cream cheese usually fathead dough brings in carbs too, which added to the filling with the tomato bringing in carbs already (12 to 18g, depending on brands) I opted for my own fathead version which we had a glimpse of in the sweet and savoury donut holes last year, so all you need to make these happen is some flaxseed / linseed, mozzarella and egg.

I also left the values for the ingredients as added, but I personally drained the fat from my beef filling as I was frying it cause it really had a lot, that probbably lowered the calories of a good 100 per empanada.
