Cooked empanadas can be stored in the fridge for 3-7 days. Wrap them individually in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer bag or airtight container.

To freeze your unbaked empanadas for a longer time, begin by freezing them on baking sheets. When they are completely frozen, wrap them individually and place them in a freezer back. They will last up to three months this way.
