Pastelillos de Guayaba

Amazingly simple and incredibly delicious! That about sums up these little tasty treats. All my life I have loved those puffy guava pastries dusted with confectioners sugar that are sold at most Latino bakeries. I wanted to eat a home-made alternative to those and voilá here they are! These taste amazing and make a perfect after dinner dessert, breakfast companion with coffee or a wonderful afternoon snack with your tea. They can be served warm (right out of the oven) with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on the side. But be careful, the guava paste will be very hot!

Ingredients:
1. Small empanada discs
2. Guava paste
3. Seriously sharp cheddar (I like VT's cabot)


What to do?
-Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees
-Place disc on a clean surface
-Cut a slice of cheese and a slice of guava and place inside disc
-Fold disc and close with fork


 -Place on cookie sheet in oven for 25 minutes or until shell begins to brown.

Enjoy! I promise you will make this time and again!
