Spanish-Inspired Empanadas with Balsamic-Date Dipping Sauce

 

1 box of refrigerated pie dough, Pillsbury or Food Club preferred

1 cup Manchego cheese, grated

1 cup thinly sliced Serrano ham, diced (1/4 pound)

1 cup Medjool dates, pits removed, chopped

1 egg

1 tablespoon water

1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped

2/3 cup balsamic vinegar

2/3 cup water

2/3 cup Medjool dates, pits removed, quartered

1 tablespoon sugar

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Keep the dough chilled until ready to use. On a large well-floured surface unroll the rolls of dough. Using a three to four inch round biscuit cutter, cut out circles of dough. Combine in a large bowl the Manchego cheese, Serrano ham and chopped dates. Add a heaping tablespoon of filling onto one half of each circle leaving a 1/2 inch border from the edge. Brush the edges of the dough with a small amount of water. Fold the other half over the filing to create a 1/2 circle. Using the tines of a fork, press the edges together to seal the empanada and create a decorative edge. In a small bowl combine the egg and tablespoon of water. Stir to combine and brush the mixture over the top of the empanadas. Transfer to a greased baking sheet with a thin spatula and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. While baking combine the balsamic vinegar, water, sugar and quartered dates in a saucepan. Bring to a boil while stirring. Bring down to a low boil and allow to reduce to 1/2 its volume. Strain out the dates and place the completed sauce in a bowl. Drizzle some of the sauce over the empanadas after they have cooled. Also sprinkle with the chopped thyme. Makes 12 to 15 empanadas depending on size of the cutter.
