Decorating my Empanada Dough

I have been experinmenting with my empanada dough decoratively.

I learned this from watching the Amazing Race. The task was to make empanada in a certain way. If I could recall it well, just like this. Who says you can't learn anything from T.V!

This is how I did it, but please excuse the blurry photos. It was hard to take a photo with my phone in one hand while my other hand was doing the demo and all covered with flour, under yellow bulb.

Prepare the emapanada dough

Roll the dough into a thin round layer with a rolling pin. Pushing the dough flat with hand is also an alternative. Stuff the dough with empanada filling.

Fold the dough to half to cover-up the filling. Start on either end by pinching it.

Slide the end over the top of your forefinger, using your other hand of course.
Do this until you reach the other end. And that's it! It's ready to bake to enjoy!

Do you have any other decorative ideas for empanada? I would love for you to share it at my Passion Parade Friday Link Soiree!
