Spice It Up!

Pastelitos de Guayaba y Queso (Guava and Cheese Pastry)



This is a really simple recipe. It's fool proof if you follow it!


Pastelito de guayaba y queso - Guava and cheese pastry


1 package of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets

Guava paste, 1/3 of a 14 oz package

4 oz Cream cheese

½ cup of sugar

½ cup of water


Preheat your oven to 350°F.

Prepare ½ cup of simple syrup, set aside to cool.

****Simple syrup is equal parts of sugar and water, boiled until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Cut the guava paste and cream cheese into 1 inch pieces. Set aside.

Lightly dust a clean, smooth surface with flour. Roll out the thawed pastry dough. Have a small cup 
of water handy to moisten the edges if needed.

Cut the dough into nine squares. (18 if you are using both sheets of dough).

Place a piece of guava and a piece of cream cheese on each square.

Take the corner of each square and fold it over, forming a triangle. Press down on the edges so 
the triangle stays closed. Brush each triangle with simple syrup.

Place all pastelitos on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until golden.

Enjoy these Cuban pastry with a nice cup of espresso!
