Making the Empanadillas - Prepare the Dough

Dough Ingredients

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup milk, lukewarm
  • 1/3 cup water, lukewarm
  • 3/4 cup olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Spanish sweet paprika
  • 1 cube moist yeast, or one envelope of dry yeast

Make the Dough and Let Rise

Put the flour into a large mixing bowl and mix in the salt and sweet Spanish paprika. Make a hole in the center of the flour. Place the yeast in the lukewarm water to dissolve it. Pour the oil, the water-yeast mixture and the milk into the depression in the center of the flour. Mix with a wooden spoon, then knead the dough with your hands. The dough should be elastic and form a ball.

Cover the bowl with a dish towel. Let the dough rise for about 1 hour. The bowl should be in a warm room, so that it rises properly. If your kitchen is drafty, place the covered bowl in the oven to rise.

Now it is time to prepare either the tuna or meat filling.
