Apricot Almond Empanaditas

1 Sheet frozen puff pastry sheet; thawed
1/4 c Slivered almonds
1 c Apricot preserves
1/8 ts Cinnamon
2 tb Ground almonds; for topping

Yields 16 Empanaditas. Frozen puff pastry is used to make these easy fruit-filled empanaditas. They're best served straight from the oven.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with vegetable cooking spray. On a floured board, unfold and roll out puff pastry sheet to a 12-inch square. Cut pastry into 16 3-inch squares.

In a small bowl, mix apricot preserves with almonds and cinnamon.

Top each pastry square with a heaping teaspoon of apricot preserve mixture. Fold squares in half to form triangles. Brush edges of triangles with water and press edges together with tines of a fork. Place triangles on prepared baking sheet. Bake empanaditas for 15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and dust with ground almonds. Serve warm.
