Empanadas

My mother found this recipe in an old cookbook. She only uses it sporadically, but it's always the best time when she does.

Prep
Cook
Serves 12people
Ingredients
1
lb ground beef
1
garlic clove
1
tsp salt
1
can (15 oz) fresh cut corn, drained
1/2
cup chopped onions
6
oz grated cheddar cheese
1
cup salsa
2
cans (16 oz) large refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, or cresent rolls
Directions
1.
Brown the ground beef in a frying pan adding the salt and pepper just before done.
2.
Let the beef cool.
3.
In a large bowl mix the corn, onions, cheese, and salsa, then add the cooled beef mixing carefully so not to break up all the cheese.
4.
Roll the biscuits out flat to about 2-1/2 times their size.
5.
Place approx 1/3 cup filling on one side of the center of the circle lengthwise.
6.
Fold the dough over the filling like a turn over and crimp the edges like a pie crust. Be careful not to tear the dough, and to seal the edges completely or your filling will come out! depending on how much filling is used will determine how many biscuits you will use.
7.
Place on slightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 till lightly browned
