Empanada Recipe

This is a recipe my sister learned from her host family in Costa Rica. I like it because it's so vague.
-3 cups flour
-2 sticks butter
-"maybe a lil sugar"
-"add cream and flour until it's the right consistency"
-whatever you want to stuff them with

"mush it together with yo' hands"

make small balls with the dough
flatten them out into circles, add a dollop of whatever you're putting inside (can be literally anything, sweet or savory)
fold the circles in half and pinch the edges together using a fork
place the empanadas a couple inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F, until golden brown (usually about 20 minutes)

"That recipe is oh-so sensory. You use your hands to mush it up! It smells nice! It tastes nice!"
