Empadinhas-with puff pastry or egg roll skin or wonton skin?

I am looking to make bazilian Empadinhas. They do not have to be perfectly authentic. I have some puff pastry, eggroll skins, and wonton skins. Can I use any of these. Again it does not have to be authentic it just has to work. Also if there is another barzilian dish that I can use any of these for?

Looks like these are usually made with a pie crust or pizza crust type of dough. What yo have would work, they'd just be a little different. I would dock the puff pastry so it doesn't puff up too much.

Most cultures offer a tasty treat wrapped in dough and baked or fried.

But if you don't use a bready-type dough, it won't be an empanada.
