MEMORIES: St. Valentine’s Series – Dessert: Nutella and Guava-Filled Pastry (Pastelillos de Guayaba y Nutella)
My recipe choice is an attempt to move away from the traditional Valentine’s chocolate covered strawberries, cakes and cupcakes. As an alternative, this is such a romantic and elegant French dessert. It’s ridiculously easy and it takes no time and no special skills to make. It’s so flaky, delicious and YUMMY. This dessert is perfect to end a romantic dinner.
1 sheet of Puff Pastry
Nutella and Guava to fill them
Follow the Puff Pastry box instructions “exactly” to thaw the pastry sheet.
Look at my slide presentation for instructions on cutting and placing in baking sheet.
Follow the Puff Pastry box instructions to bake puff pastry.
When done, pull them apart slowly, just half way through, fill them and close them back.
Finally, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
Serve them immediately or within a couple of hours. I do not recommend that you keep them for a day, since all pastry becomes soggy with time. If you do, keep them in an air tight container and then pray!!!!
HACK: You can serve these babies with a cup of Expresso, or Hot Cocoa, or better yet, a glass of champagne. Enjoy!
