Guava Pastries

I'm babysitting for a few days. Sunday at 6pm my niece tells me

Tarina - Oh I have to do something for school Can you help me?

Me - Sure. What do you need?

Tarina - Oh not much. Just take a few pictures.

Me - Ok.

What I didn't know was that she had to bake pastries, take pictures, print pictures and do a whole presentation for tomorrow. Anyway, she did it. There is nothing like a deadline. Here is the recipe:

Guava Pastries


1 package of pastry sheets
14 oz. of guava paste
Optional: Powder sugar


1. Cut apart pastry sheets
2. Let sheets thaw for 40 minutes
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
