Recipe: Guava and Cream Cheese Turnovers

 

JBF Award winner Jose Garces's cookbook The Latin Road Home centers around the numerous Spanish-speaking countries that have shaped his career, and the menu at his 2013 Beard House event reflected the book's theme, with each course rooted in the cuisine of a different nation. For dessert, Garces served these buttery, Cuban turnovers, or pasteles, made by enveloping guava paste and cream cheese in puff pastry. Using store-bought pastry, you can enjoy them at home, too.
