                          My mom and I tried this recipe for the first time but we used chicken as a filling rather than ham because of ASF here in the Philippines. I panicked a bit since the dough is still sticky while kneading but after about 10mins or so it got smooth. Mom cooked half of the empanadas and maybe the rest tomorrow. Mom said the crust is not sweet but that's just her being filipino she still find the empanada tasty. For me the crust was delicious and even it was exposed for some time it is still crunchy. It also smell soooo good!
                          Overall its really delicious and will try again in the future. Thank you very much Gaby! 😊

                                Made some for the first time with the recipe and I'm surprised how well the crust of the empanadas turned out. It wasn't perfect but it turned out really good. I love the crust

                                                            Gaby mentioning that you can use vegan substitutes is so absolutely sweet and wholesome. I watch these BA videos a lot, I love them all but I really love the fact that someone making a non-vegan recipe has the compassion to mention the possibility of making it vegan. Thank you, Gaby, you're awesome!
