Pastelitos de Guayaba Y Queso Recipe


Flaky, buttery, and just plain delicious. Pasteles or pastelitos is a pastry that hails
from Cuba. The usual filling for this decadent treat can be savory or sweet! For
this recipe, we are using Guava paste. Don’t knock it ‘till you’ve tried it! Guava
paste has an amazing flavor that goes so well with cheese – which is why we are
also adding it into the filling!
This dish is enjoyed with coffee in the morning or even as an afternoon snack.
This is a breeze to make. We’re using store-bought puff pastry for this recipe, but
if you have the time to make your own – then it can be x10 better!
Serving Size: 4
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
8 oz. guava paste
8 oz. cream cheese
1 package puff pastry
1 Tbsp. refined sugar
¼ cup powdered sugar
½ cup eggwash
1. Preheat your oven to 400F and prepare a baking sheet lined with
parchment paper. Lay out a sheet of the puff pastry on the baking sheet
and evenly divide the guava paste and cream cheese on each imaginary
square. Brush the sides of the puff pastry with eggwash and layer
another sheet of pastry on top. Seal the sides. Cut each pastry square
with filling and arrange them on the baking sheet leaving 1” of space per
each pastry square.
2. Brush with egg wash before baking for 20-30 minutes or until the pastry
is puffed up and golden in color.
3. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy with café con leche!
