Woo-hoo… it’s the weekend! This entire week I’ve squeezed as much relaxation as I possibly could during the weekend because the weekend ahead is a busy one again for me. What plans do you have? Any fun eats for you in the horizon? Hopefully you’ll enjoy something cool and creamy since Sunday is National Ice Cream Day! But until then, I do have something sweet to share. Since I tend to share something sweet on Fridays, here’s the last dish to share from our recent Havana Nights Cooking Party. These Pastelitos de Guayaba combine a favorite pairing of guava paste and cream cheese tucked inside layers of flaky puff pastry. Enjoy this with a hot cup of cafe con leche or a shot of espresso to start off your morning, Cuban style…
recipe adapted from Hispanic Kitchen
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.
