    Ingredients
    1 1/2
    cups
    all purpose flour
    1/2
    teaspoon
    salt
    1/8
    teaspoon
    baking powder
    4
    tablespoons
    unsalted butter, cold
    1/2
    cup
    ice water
    1 1/2
    cups
    shredded cooked turkey
    1
    cup
    cooked stuffing
    1/4
    cup
    caramelized onion, minced
    2
    green onions, minced
    *
    oil for frying
    Directions
    In a large bowl combine flour, salt and baking powder. Whisk to combine.
    Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until flour mixture resembles coarse crumbles. Add cold water and mix with hands until a pliable dough forms.
    Wrap dough in plastic wrap and transfer to fridge for at least 15 minutes.
    Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine turkey, stuffing, onions, and green onion. Set aside.
    Remove empanada dough from fridge and roll out to 1/8 inch thickness on a well floured surface.
    Cut rounds using a 3-inch round cookie cutter (or cup/bowl). Dust rounds with flour and set aside. Combine scraps, roll out and cut rounds, continuing the process until no further rounds can be cut.
    In a fry pan on medium heat, warm oil until it begins to ripple.
    Using one round at a time, add 2 packed tablespoons of turkey mixture to center of round. Carefully fold over edges to create a half moon shape, then crimp and seal edges with a fork. Repeat with remaining rounds and filling.
    Once empanadas are formed, fry in batches until golden and crisp on both sides. Drain empanadas on paper towels and serve hot.
