My family enjoys these little cakes. I usually cut them in half, place on top of shredded cabbage and either drizzle a little bit of Sarita's All Purpose Tomato Sauce on top or serve it on the side as a dipping sauce. A tortilla press makes the process of flattening the cakes easier. If you do not have one you can just use a rolling pin but just place the masa ball inbetween two sheets of parchment paper to prevent it from sticking to the rolling pin. If you do not have the chicken bullion then you will have to add extra salt and the taste will not be the same. I recommend making and frying one meat pie before making the rest just to make sure that the thickness of the masa is good and not to thick that the masa inside is raw when fried.

This is a childhood favorite that conjures up memories of growing up as a gringa in South Florida and sitting in the open air Cuban Cafes and indulging on these sweet pastries! These pastries are wonderful with a café con leche!! They were a special treat that we were allowed to have on occasion for breakfast. It is actually one of the few things I actually miss about South Florida! The recipe is from Felipe Valls.

I have not tried this recipe. I got this recipe from Holidays Of The World Cookbook For Students. This recipe is from Bolivia. I plan to use Splenda for baking for the sugar.

This recipe was found in the 1986 cookbook, I Hear America Cooking. These "little pies" are a version of those pastries made in Arizona & New Mexico, especially during Pueblo feast days. Preparation time does not include the 30 minutes needed for the dough to chill. Although this recipe can be considered 'Native American' I marked it as 'Southwest' as part of the USA - After all, we're all Americans!

Notes:Guava paste is available in the Latin American aisle of most supermarkets and also in a variety of online stores. In a pinch, quince paste is an acceptable substitute. I used one (17.3-ounce) package of Pepperidge Farm brand frozen puff pastry sheets for this recipe, which contains two puff pastry sheets. Dufour brand frozen puff pastry comes in 14-ounce packages containing only one sheet of puff pastry. If using Dufour you will need two packages, and will get ten pastelitos, rather than eight. Roll the thawed pastry sheets out to 12- by 16-inches. Cut off a 12- by 4-inch strip. Cut remaining 12- by 12-inch piece into four 6-inch squares. Proceed with recipe, but increase guava to 10 ounces and cream cheese to 12 ounces. Fold the square pieces of pastry diagonally into triangles, and fold the two 12- by 4-inch strips in half over the filling to make rectangular pastelitos. Increase baking time to 15 to 20 minutes. Both versions of the recipe may be halved. Adjust oven rack to middle position if doing so.

This recipe found at Aunt Clara's Kitchen. I've used this recipe changing the filling. I've also increased ingredients and more for parties. These can be made ahead of time and frozen till needed. If you freeze, allow them to thaw before deep frying. Can also exchange meat for shredded cheese or fruit jellies/jams for a quick dessert. Hope you enjoy.
