I’m a shop guy/tinkerer/builder. Not a baker. So this challenge was a stretch for my skill set once past the woodwork. I decided to make an Empanada press. I've seen and eaten little fruit pies of this shape, even a meat pie once. I never saw how they were made or shaped, obviously it would be no problem to invent such a thing. Little did I know.
The first part of this submission is how to make the press. The second is my adventures in making it work. This is the first time I have ever baked a Pie.
