Empanada Recipe with Cream Cheese Crust

We lived in Panama for five years. One of the foods we came to love was empanadas, our favorite recipe is this one with a cream cheese crust. My mom will make these for a party or for a family gathering. She takes the time to make mini versions. Me - I am lazy and make larger ones.
I probably wrote out this recipe in the mid 1970's. First I didn't write all the directions out. Plus, I find it interesting to read these old recipes, Note this recipe called for oleo.
Talk about throw back. 


1 lb. cream cheese
1 lb. butter
4 C. flour

Crust: Have cream cheese & butter at room temp.
Cream butter and cream cheese
Add flour slowly
Chill well

Roll out and cut out circles.
Filling: 1 1/2 lb. ground meat. Add chili, salt, pepper, parsley, Tabasco and garlic to taste.
Add a small portion of meat to half of the circle of crust. Fold over gently and crimp with a fork.

Baked at 350 degrees until golden brown. These freeze and reheat extremely well.
