Last clue.

E************** trace their origins to Galicia and Portugal. They first appeared in medieval Iberia during the time of the Moorish invasions.

I now have two correct answers but no claims for a win. Some have identified the correct food, but it called different things in various countries. I'll let this go on a little longer then I'll claim victory that I stumped you, and post another pic.

Pardon me for stepping in, but I'll just say no to the Russian and escargot questions. Actually, Chris gave you a good clue on the ethnicity of it.

I have a hint I'd love to give, but it's Chris's thread right now.

It sure looks yummy, but that may be a bit too much sugar for me now.

Try Portuguese foods girls ...

I like the portuguese harder sausage, great with pizza or with eggs for breakfast. :O It can be a wake up call for those who have a weaker tummy.

Wait a minute here...

Earlier, someone posted the correct answer after I posted my Taco Bell hint. Now it's not there. What happened?

Discussion belongs in the Discussion Thread but several posts after yours have the edited flag set so it is possible the OP removed the answer, intentionally.

The item does appear to be on the images that I found using WK's suggestion in the discussion thread. The generic name for the item is of course a pasty, but the particular one I was looking for was an Empanada maker, which is what the manufacturer calls it.

This has dragged on for too long now so I an declaring WK the winner, as he was the first one to provide a direct source to an suitable image. If he declines I'll post another image.

Not sure I deserve this, but to save Chris sinking further into the mire, here's an item that lives in my kitchen. I'm not sure how old it is, or that it has been used in a kitchen, but I know it was old when I was knee high to a grasshopper.
