These flaky pastries combine the sweetness of guava paste with the mild flavor of queso fresco to make a delicious treat or afternoon snack.

Queso fresco is one of the most popular cheeses in Mexico. It's a soft, moist and mild cheese with a fine grain texture. It's also a versatile cheese that pairs well with sweet and savory ingredients. For this recipe, I used TROPICAL Queso Fresco and guava paste to make sweet and savory, flaky and delicious pastries. Sooo good!
