This is a very old post, that I have updated with a new picture.
I wish I knew how to translate the word 'Pastelillo' into English. If it were a savory recipe, I could call it Empanada (I do realize that's another Spanish word). Does anyone know how to correctly translate it?
There are as many meanings for that word as there are Spanish speaking countries.
Since I don't know the right English word, I'll just describe what it is. Very simple: Puff Pastry and Guava Paste. That's it!
Cut the Puff Pastry into round or square shapes (any size will do). Put a little Guava Paste in the center of one piece. Then cover with another piece, press the edges and bake until done (about 15-20 minutes depending on how many you're making). Sprinkle the top with Powdered Sugar after they have cooled down.
This is a very Puertorrican recipe. You can find these delicious pastries in every bakery.
