Guava Pineapple Pastries – Sabroso Saturday

Last week was Puerto Rico Day at my church, a part of our International Sunday spring program. I made these pastries filled with guava and pineapple jelly – fruit flavors that make me think of tropical breezes. The shells were made using cinnamon-roll dough (a tube of 8 rolls). Open the tube, separate the strips, work out some anger, mush them up, roll them out. Leave the icing aside – the fruit filling is sweet enough!

Each of the shells got about 1 spoonful of filling. No matter what we did, they popped open while baking. Nobody complained. We made a batch at home and drank milk with them. The filling was a non-recipe adventure. See for yourself.

FILLING
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
2 bricks guava paste (check ethnic section)

Cut each brick of guava paste into about 8 chunks. In clean glass jar, melt guava paste in microwave – 2 chunks at a time, one minute at a time. Stir before adding more paste. Jar will be HOT! Wait 5 minutes after the last bits of guava paste are melted, then stir in half of the drained pineapple bits. Mix thoroughly.

I still have some jelly in the refrigerator – it could be a good topping for cinnamon-raisin bagels or cinnamon swirl bread.
