GUAVA PASTRIES (PASTELILLOS); THE EASIEST PASTRY TO MAKE IN MINUTES, JUST LIKE A PASTRY CHEF! SMILE.
“Pastelillos” are easy to make, you can give them away to good friends, bring to a party or just make them for your family minutes before or after dinner, with a nice cup of cappuccino or espresso. Not only that, they look amazing and tastes delicious.
Approximate Prep and Cooking Time: Once thawed, prep and cook is about 15 minutes
Approximate Cost: $3.15 or $1.58 per serving
Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
Servings: 5 (at 3 per plate)
1 sheet of Puff Pastry, (half way thawed at room temperature) ($2.35)
¼ piece of Guava Paste (.50)
Pam Cooking Spray (for the baking mold) (.15)
Powdered sugar to sprinkle over the pastry once is done (.15)
Pre-heat the oven at 400 degrees. Slice the guava and cut in 1 ½ pieces. Set aside.
Thaw one of the pastry sheet according to package directions. (They come folded, so open the sides, you will have 3 strips. Cut each in 3 pieces and then cut across to get triangles.)
Spray the baking mold with Pam, place on the mold and bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
Carefully, open the triangles, stuff with guava pieces, close and sprinkle with powdered sugar. DONE!
When I am craving dessert badly, I also add to the slice of guava a slice of cream cheese sprinkled with a bit of sugar. Both melt in the pastry and in your mouth!
