How I make pie crust can be found here.
How I make my empanada filling can be found here.
This is basically a short description of how I make my empanadas nowadays. In using the dough press to shape the circles, use a bigger one as the dough may shrink back once you lift it up. Then use the right size dough to place this on and the filling. You will have some extra dough to pinch off this way.
After several times of making this, I have come up with some more tips:
1. Use plastic to cover dough while rolling. It makes flipping easier.
2. Sprinkle flour from time to time to lessen stickiness.
3. Make sure your dough is quite chilled and not room temp before rolling. It tends to be less sticky, and it tends to help preserve the flakiness. So to do this, take out some dough and leave some while you work on your first batch.
4. The eggwash will make your floury dough seal. Without it, the flour will prevent sealing. The while baking, eggwash makes your empanadas appear golden.
