    Hi ,I just started a small operation of bake empanadas ,my question is what is the best way to do it frozen and not loosing the taste or look that is fresh. Because I start to have more orders and I want to do more and frozen to be ready.

    Welcome to Chefalk.

    Are the empanadas the only item you're featuring?

    Freezing anything decreases its quality.

    If there is a way for you to calculate a par stock each day so that you can ovoid freezing the empanadas that would be ideal.

    Is the dough freshly made as well? The dough is going to be your problem as far as quality is concerned. Freezing evaporates moisture and will take its toll on whatever pastry dough you use....even puff pastry
