Guava Pastelitos

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


1 box of frozen puff pastry (thawed). You can find this is the freezer section at the grocery store.

1 container Guava paste. ( I used Goya). It came in a rectangular box wrapped in plastic.

1/4 cup powdered sugar for dusting.


Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat mat. layout one sheet of puff pastry on baking sheet. Cut Guava paste into strips to fit evenly on puff pastry. You will have 3 rows across and three rows down. Cover the Guava paste with the other sheet of puff pastry. Using a knife or pizza cutter cut the pastries into 9 even squares. pinch ends of pastries or crinkle with a fork around edges of pastries. Place in oven to bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.remove from oven when golden brown on top and puff pastry has puffed up. dust with powdered sugar.
