These Guava pastries are just divine. The guava is creamy, sweet, and the puff pastry is nice and flaky. I just love this. These are super easy to make and with the help of buying the puff pastry, these can hit your table in no time.
1 packaged of Puff Pastry Dough (2 sheets)
1 8 oz cream cheese
2 tbsp of sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp water
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set oven to 375 degree
In a mixing bowl combine the cream cheese and sugar, beat until creamy. Set aside. Unroll the puff pastry and place on a floured counter. With a rolling pin, stretch the puff pastry slightly to make it a little bigger. Once done place on prepare baking sheet. Cut the guava paste into 1/4 inch slices and place on pastry sheet. Leaving a space in between.
Follow with a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture. I use a piping bag to make it easier. Repeat process until you have about 15 pastries.
Unroll the second pastry sheet and stretch it just a little longer with the rolling pin, place on top to cover the guava and cheese. Cut dough with a sharp knife or a pizza cutter. Beat the egg white and water. Brush on each pastry.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Let them cool down for at least 10 minutes before eating. Sprinkle with powder sugar. Enjoy!!
