All children, young and old, will love the taste of these flaky ham and cheese pockets.

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Makes 18


½ pound finely chopped ham (your kid’s favorite)
2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup mayonnaise
2 TBSP honey mustard
2 ready-to-bake sheets of puff pastry, thawed according to package directions (about 1 lb.)
Egg wash made with one beaten egg, plus one tablespoon water


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the ham, cheese, mayonnaise, and mustard; chill for 30 minutes.
  4. On a clean and lightly floured surface, roll out one puff pastry sheet into a 12-inch square; cut it into 9 (4-inch by 4-inch) squares, using a sharp knife or a pastry cutter. Place 2 packed tablespoons of the ham mixture on the center of each square; brush the edges of each pastry square with egg wash and fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle.
  5. Use the tines of a fork to seal the edges decoratively. Place pastry triangles on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the second puff pastry sheet.
  6. When all the empanadas are filled, bake them until golden, about 15-20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
