Fried Cream Cheese and Guava Hand Pies

Cream Chease and guava Hand Pies

I am sooooo sorry for keeping this recipe from you for so long.
It’s almost two years old. I developed the recipe, took the photo and made the video back in 2009 for a little cream cheese contest I entered.
And I forgot about it. SHAME.ON.ME

It’s ok to slap me. I deserve it.

These are so easy and so quick to make. Like seriously easy and quick….watch the video, you will see just how simple they are.

Onto the yum-a-licious recipe.

    Guava is my favorite jam! My mother used to pick them on the golf course and made the most divine jam. Now I have to buy it at the market. πŸ™
    My DIL just gave me a cookbook called Cutie Pies for Christmas…this would be a perfect addition!
