Salsa blanca empanadas

Ingredientes:

SALSA BLANCA
2 cucharadas de harina
1 cucharada de manteca
1 y 1/2 taza de leche (más o menos)
sal, pimienta, nuez moscada

RELLENO
1 lata de choclo cremoso o en granos, según tu gusto
1 cebolla no muy grande picada.
puede llevar queso rallado o/y huevo duro picado
Sal, pimienta.

Se derrite la manteca en una cacerolita, se agrega la harina y revolviendo bien se deja cocinar 2 minutos.
Luego se agrega la leche, revolviendo constantemente con cuchara de madera, hasta que hierva. Se apaga el fuego y se condimenta. Debe quedar espesa.

En un poco de manteca se fríe la cebolla hasta que esté transparente, se agrega el choclo y se cocina un poquito. Se condimenta y se añade a la salsa blanca.
Luego se rellenan las tapas de empanadas y se hace el repulgue o se aplasta el borde con un tenedor.

Luego hay que pintarlas con huevo batido y AL HORNO !!!!!, eso sí, bien caliente, hasta que estén doraditas.
