Taking its cues from empanada filling, these puff pastry pasties encase cumin, paprika and marjoram-spiced ground beef that's studded with hardboiled egg, green olives and golden raisins. Brushed with egg yolk and baked until golden, they're best enjoyed warm, though they're quite yummy at room temperature as well. You can vary the recipe to your personal preferances, for example using ground lamb or chicken instead of beef. Then, just complement your protein accordingly.

These pasties had a nice blend of sweet and savory. I chopped a handful of fresh parsley and tossed it in with the meat mixture since I’m crazy about fresh herbs and the color green! Then I wrapped three pasties at a time in aluminum foil and filled up the picnic basket! Perfect!
