Literally "little pies". With sweet fillings they can used as desserts and with savory fillings, either as side dishes or snacks.


Fillings Edit


Pastelitos Edit

  1. If using commercial puff pastry sheets, cut in thirds lengthwise, then again crosswise, resulting in 9 equal sized pieces.
  2. Place a teaspoon of filling in the center of the square.
  3. Fold diagonally opposite corners of the puff pastry to form triangles and seal the edges with a fork. Note: the less you handle the sheets of pastry the more it will puff up later.
  4. Place pastries on a cookie sheet, leaving enough room between each so they don't touch once they puff up during cooking.
  5. Brush the tops with simple syrup using a pastry brush.
  6. Bake at on the middle rack of the oven at 350°F for 20 – 30 minutes, or until golden and flaky.

Fillings Edit

  1. Almost anything can be used as a filling, sweet or savory.
