Cafe con Leche and Pastelito de Guayaba

Café con Leche and Pastelito de Guayaba

One of my all-time favorite Cuban foods has to be a
fresh-baked guava “pastelito” with lots of guava
fruit oozing out of the sides. Guavas have many health
benefits including five times the vitamin C of oranges and
are also rich in vitamins A and B1. Of course when they’re
processed with sugar as a marmalade and then baked inside
a puff pastry, I think they might loose some of their nutritional
value! In spite of that, a guava pastelito along with a delicious
cup of Cuban coffee with milk (latte for those folks who
can’t get real, fresh brewed, Bustelo) is wonderful! I can almost smell it!
