  • 1 package Puff Pastry Dough
  • 1 package Guava Paste
  • 8 oz cream cheese optional
  • 1 Egg White
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar Large


  • Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F
  • Thaw Puff pastry according to package directions.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and unfold one of the pastry sheets and place on pan.
  • Slice guava into 1/4 inch slices and place evenly on the pastry sheet.
  • Spread cream cheese over guava paste slices (optional)
  • Top with second puff pastry sheet and cut into desired pastry size. I cut mine in 1.5 inch squares.
  • Beat egg whites in a small bowl and brush over the top of the pastries. Sprinkle with cane sugar.
  • You can bake these as they are and pull them apart when they are done. Or you can also separate and bake them individually like you would cookies.  I prefer the second method. 
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and serve.
