This is the recipe for traditional Cuban/Puerto Rican pastries that can only be found in some places. Our family goes crazy for them! Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.

  • Roll puff pastry into a thin sheet on a floured surface. Cut into squares about the length of your hand and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Beat egg and water together in a bowl; brush each pastry square with egg wash. Stab each square a few times with a fork.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool at least 10 minutes.

  • Mix guava paste and jam together in a bowl until smooth.

  • Cut a large, vertical slit into each pastry. Spread 1 tablespoon guava mixture into each slit, making sure guava doesn't squeeze out when closed.

Cook's Notes:

You can cut the pastry in any shape or size you want. To make mini pastries, just cut it about 3 by 3 inches.

Guava jam also works.
