Guava Paste – Cream Cheese Pastry

Guava paste - Cream cheese Pastry 2

Came across this wonderful recipe on TV. It is a treat for all the guava lovers. It is a wonderful mix of sweet guava and cream cheese that compliments the flavor. Serve it hot and no guava lover will stop at just one 🙂
Guava paste comes in a bar. I got it at Fiesta Grocery store.
In India you get mango that comes in a bar. That will taste yummy too.

Ingredients:

  • Puff pastry sheets (I use Pepperidge farm)
  • Guava paste
  • Cream cheese
  • Powdered sugar (optional, for dusting)

Method:

  • Let the pastry sheet sit at room temperature.
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • The puff pastry has two big sheets. Each sheet has three folds.
  • Take one fold and divide it into two small rectangles.
  • Roll out one rectangle and place some guava paste and cream cheese on it.
