I fell in love with these Cuban Pastries while on vacation in Miami. I was so excited when I figured out how to duplicate them when I got home. For optimum quality, enjoy these pastries shortly after cooling, or on the same day they're baked.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out each sheet of pastry dough slightly, just to thin it. Cut each sheet into 12 squares, and place half the squares on the prepared baking sheet, leaving at least half an inch between each square.
  3. Place a spoonful of coconut in the center of each pastry square, then top with a second pastry square. Pinch the dough on two sides to seal in the coconut filling.
  4. Bake pastries in preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 20 minutes. Cool on a rack.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I am Cuban and I love these, one trick my mom uses is brush a little diluted apricot jam on top for glazing delightful yummy!!!!! This recipe also works with Guava Paste.

Easy peasy...made these with my toddler! Yummy...I didn't have canned grated coconut, I used orange flower water and golden syrup with some honey to wet the dry coconut...I added pine nuts...I tweak things...but I am sure the recipe is great by itself...it lends itself to creativity!
