  • 1 pound cream cheese
  • 1 pound butter, softened

  • 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.
