  1. Put flour and salt into a bowl of the food processor.
  2. Cut cannabis-infused butter into 12 pieces and add to the flour and salt mixture.
  3. Add egg and water.
  4. Blend the mixture until you get a clumpy dough.
  5. Flour a kitchen surface.
  6. Remove the dough from the food processor and place it on the floured surface.
  7. Form the dough into a ball and use plastic wrap to cover it.
  8. Put the ball-shaped dough into the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  9. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and put it back on the floured kitchen surface.
  10. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a ⅛-inch thick sheet.
  11. Use a bowl or plate to cut the dough into round parts.
  12. Place the dough discs on the floured cutting board.
  13. Put the cutting board into the refrigerator. A tip here: If you do not want to proceed now, you can place the dough discs in the refrigerator or freezer until you are ready to use it. You can also double the dough ingredients to make extra discs for future empanadas.
  14. Peel or roughly chop a large onion and put it into a blender.
  15. Seed and roughly chop a bell pepper. Add it to the onion in the blender.
  16. Add a whole garlic head.
  17. Remove all the cilantro stems and roughly chop the cilantro leaves. Put them into the blender as well.

  33. Sprinkle with cheese if you are using it.

  35. Repeat with the other discs.
  36. Place the empanadas back on the floured cutting board.
  37. Put the cutting board into the refrigerator for 30 minutes. A tip here: It is better to let the empanadas sit in the refrigerator to prevent the filling from leaking out during baking. You can also freeze empanadas for future experience.
  38. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  40. Place the empanadas on the lined baking sheet.
