| Argentine empanadas|
|     ||1 cup Butter||  ||1 Large egg|
|     ||2 Chives||  ||1 tsp Spicy pepper|
|     ||1 tsp Ground cumin||  ||2 Hardboiled eggs|
|     ||50 gr Raisins||  ||2 tbsp Butter|
|     ||1000 gr Flour||  ||500 gr Ground beef|| |
Make a dough mixing the Flour, Egg and 1 cup of butter. Add a little salt and water to the dough. Knead until you have made a good ball of dough, cover it with a hand towel and let it rest for about 30 min.
Cook the ground beef in boiling water with salt for about 5 minutes; strain and rinse well. Chop up the 2 chives and melt the 2 Tbsp of butter in a pan. Cook the chopped chives in the pan until they become transparent. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan and cook them together on high for about 5 minutes. Let cool.
Divide the dough into 8 balls, strech them and fill them with the filling. Close the dough so that no filling can fall out. Glaze the empanadas with a little bit of melted butter and place them in the oven on Medium for about 15 to 20 min.
