  • 1 package puff pastry thawed per the package
  • 1/2 lb. guava (guayaba) paste cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water


  • Preheat to 400F.
  • Line your baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
  • Unfold your first pastry sheet on the silpat.
  • Spread out your guava slices on the pastry sheet. You can go pretty close to the edges.
  • Unfold your second pastry sheet and place on top of the guava slices
  • Cut into 6-9 rectangular pastries. You do not need to separate them before baking. Cut 3-4 large slits in each of your pastries. 
  • Beat your egg and water. Brush the pastries with the egg wash. Bake 25-35 minutes until golden brown. The guava filling gets insanely hot, so be careful and let them cool before tasting.
