Expert Tips

If you would like them to be a little less sweet, but just as delicious you can choose to use either dulce de leche or guava paste alone.

Pastel Gloria is one of the most appetizing desserts Colombia has to offer. Basically, these pastries consist of puff pastry stuffed with cheese, guava paste, and often arequipe (dulce de leche). You can find these delicious pastries in bakeries throughout Colombia and they are consumed year round. However, I find that during the holiday season they make for a perfect and tasty gift. Take a bite out of a fresh pastel gloria and discover how irresistible it is. Give it a try; I’m sure you’ll agree!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Cut the guava paste into cubes. Do the same with the cheese.
  • 3 Extend the pastry rounds over a greased baking mold and add to each one a piece of guava, cheese, and with the help of a spoon, add the dulce de leche.
  • 4 Close each little packet and brush just a little egg wash over the surface.
  • 5 Sprinkle with powdered sugar and bake until golden brown.
  • 6 Serve immediately or let cool to gift-wrap.
