Pasteles de Guayaba: Guava Pastries
- 1 pound cream cheese
- 1 pound butter, softened
- 1 pound flour
- 1 1/2 pounds guava paste
- Sugar, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll out the dough into a 1/4-inch thick square. Cut the rolled dough into 16 to 20 squares.
A little off center of each square, place 1 tablespoon guava paste. Fold the dough over the guava paste, forming a triangle. Press the edges shut. Place the pasteles onto a cookie sheet and sprinkle them with a thin layer of sugar.
Bake until the pasteles are evenly browned, about 25 minutes.
