Weekend Baking Project: Guava and Cream Cheese Pastelitos

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

Pastelitos—literally, "little pies"—are puff pastry turnovers filled with guava paste and cream cheese. The sweet, fruity guava is balanced by the tangy cream cheese, and I love the contrast of the soft filling with the buttery, easily shattering puff pastry shell. More

Scooped: Cream Cheese and Guava Swirl Ice Cream

Serious Eats Ethan Frisch 2 comments

The Spanish have a long tradition of eating their beloved Manchego cheese with a smear of membrillo, a sweet paste made from quince. As their culinary influence spread to colonies in the Americas, they were adopted and adapted to match local tastes and ingredients. The gestalt of the two flavors together is incredible, a completely perfect combination of sweet and tart, creamy and fruity, exotic and familiar. In ice cream form, it's even more delicious (but what isn't more delicious in ice cream form?) and incredibly easy to make. More

Guava Jam & Jelly, a la Marketman

Lia Bulaong Post a comment

Marketman of the always excellent Market Manila recently made guava jam and guava jelly from scratch, and maybe you should too, if you can find fresh guavas near you. Both the jam and jelly go well with cheese, with something as simple as cheddar on a cracker, or as upscale as camembert on croute. If you've never had a guava, they taste somewhere between a pear and a strawberry, which is to say pretty good! Filipino, Mexican and South American groceries might have guavas in fruit form, jams and jellies. If you're really lucky they'll have them baked into pastries; alternately, get Gristedes to sell you a box of Entenmann's Guava Pastries Puffs for $4.69.... More
