Warm, flaky pastry with sweet and sour guava paste: nothing beats this mix to cheer you up once back home after the long Holiday Season.
By Carla Spuri
I remember being in my grandparents’ kitchen at breakfast time perched on a chair and my eyes fixed on the small toaster oven: I knew what was about to come out of it and I knew I was going to love it. Steaming rolls of pastry encased a rich and sweet guava filling that would have been enhanced with a slice of queso fresco – It was the best breakfast I could be served as a child and it still ranks as one of my favourite treats. One that I love making to mark special occasions, this will be making an appearance at my breakfast table throughout January to give our day a touch of home and scare away the feelings of longing for another Holiday season with loved ones.Print
