DIY Guava Pastries: Pastelitos de Guayaba

I have fond memories of my grandfather’s love of Guayaba (Guava paste) and sometimes whenever I treat myself to sweets from the Puerto Rican bakery on East 116th Street, one of my favorite things to get is a Pastelito de Guayaba.

Recently, I remembered this treat from the past and came across this nifty do-it-yourself cheat version of the recipe. Please note it’s high in sugar content and not a healthy treat by any means but sweet pastries rarely are…

That being said, I would go ahead and use more guava paste than used in the video because in the real thing the guava layer literally flows out of the pastry when done. It looks like they went a little sparse there.

Ingredients needed: 
Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets
Guava Paste(Pasta de Guayaba)
Confectioners Sugar

Enjoy!
