Execution

DUCK FAT

Cut off the fat and skin from the duck legs and render them over a slow fire in a frying pan. Pour the fat into a bowl, add the skins to the broth.

DUCK BROTH

Place the duck legs in a pot, pour water, add the remaining ingredients and season. Cook over low heat for 1.5 hours or until the meat is tender. We take out the duck thighs and carrots, let them cool. Separate the meat from the bones and tear it into fibers with a fork. Cut the carrot into cubes, reserve the broth for the dough and filling.

CAKE

Sift the flour into a bowl, add salt and butter, olive oil and duck fat. Pour about 100 ml of duck broth, mix quickly and knead the dough until it is elastic and smooth. We put it on a lightly floured countertop, roll it into a ball, wrap it in a food vial and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour.

FILLING

In a deep skillet, heat olive oil and duck fat over medium heat, add cinnamon, star anise, orange peel strips and bay leaf. Add chopped onion, fennel and garlic, fry for 10 minutes. Add the meat, chopped carrots and white wine and cook for a few more minutes. Season and leave to cool, then remove the cinnamon, star anise, orange peel and bay leaf.

Melt the butter in a frying pan over low heat, add the flour and fry for a few minutes until light golden. Gradually add 300 ml of duck broth, bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until you get a thick sauce. Add the filling together with grated orange peel and parsley to the sauce.

EMPANAS

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C

Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 3 mm. Using a glass, for example, cut out circles large enough to cover the muffin tins with an excess of about 5 mm. Cut out smaller circles from the second piece of dough so that they fit on top as lids.

We line the molds with larger circles of dough and fill them with duck filling. We put smaller circles on top, squeeze the edges and stick them together, like dumplings. Cut a hole in the middle and brush the whole thing with egg.

Bake for 30 - 40 minutes until golden. Empanadas are best eaten 15-20 minutes after taking them out of the oven, when they are still warm but the duck has rested a bit. They taste perfect with a glass of good wine.
