Mini guava and cream cheese empanadas are the best example of sweet meeting savory in perfect harmony. These delicious treats are very popular in Puerto Rico and are always found at family reunions and parties. These pastries are typically prepared in "mini" sizes so that they can be served between the sweet and savory snacks on the table of appetizers. Whenever I prepare Argentinian empanadas for my husband and have leftover dough, I like to surprise him with sweet empanadas. Whether they're guava and cheese or dulce de leche, the result is always delicious. Learning to make empanadas at home is a great way to save on catering during special occasions, as it can be very expensive. Nothing beats homemade, especially when you can recruit the little ones to help. I used to make them fried, but now I prefer to make them in the oven because they're not as greasy. However, you can prepare them how you prefer.
