  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F. Brush empanadas with milk and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

  • Place 3 to 4 empanadas in a single layer in air fryer basket (do not overcrowd). Cook for 6 to 7 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining empanadas.

  • In a medium bowl whip cream until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Whip until stiff peaks form. Serve with warm empanadas; sprinkle with additional cinnamon for garnish.

Tips

Look for empanada discs at Mexican markets in the refrigerated or frozen sections.

Tips
