Have you looked into the quantities yet? I really want to make these empanadas, but without the quantities of the ingredients, it's impossible!!!

What are the quantities of the ingredients? You have to know how much flour, butter, etc. I have been looking for an empanada recipe forever, and now that I've found one, it's unusable!
