Hello friends! How are you doing on the magnificent Tuesday? Things are rolling right along over here and this week is off to a very interesting start.
So before we get into this recipes let’s chat real quick about what happened this morning. So I’m driving to work this morning and I come across this mama dog and her baby puppy just walking down the road into my neighborhood (well the puppy was running and the mama was trying to catch him). So of course I stop and I wanted to get both of them, and I was able to get the puppy but the mom ran off.
So now I’m on the side of the road with this puppy that’s terrified so what else can I do? So I get in my car and bring him with me to our vet, where I was originally taking our dog to doggie daycare that morning. Now I’m wondering if I took someone’s puppy, or if there’s more puppies out there that need help, where the mom is…ugh. So many questions. I also don’t think we can keep this puppy, realistically. Ya know? So many emotions.
Anyway! So that was my morning. Way more eventful than usual, so I had to share, but now! On the main event. Guava Pastelitos I had these everyday for breakfast while I was in Miami, so you know I had to attempt to recreate them at home!
It it all starts with the guava paste. You can find this at a Hispanic food market, or maybe your grocery store sell it, or online. I bought mine from amazon and it was here in no time. You don’t need a ton, so if you can get a small can, do that. If not, stay tuned because I have wayyy too much guava paste left over. Ha!
In addition to the guava paste, these beauties are filled with a slightly sweet cream cheese that is just such a goodness compliment to the guava paste! All wrapped up in a puff pastry dough, does it get any better??? I think not.
And oh, that crust! Crispy and flakey topped with Demerara sugar and cinnamon. Just kill me. I’m dead.
Besides, these are fast and easy to make and they keep extremely well at room temperature so you can make them tonight and have them for breakfast the rest of the week! Now that’s what I call meal planning!
So this Tuesday started out kind of crazy, but these guava Pastelitos make it all worth it. 😉
See ya tomorrow!
