Ingredients for 12 guava pies:

  • 1 shortcrust pastry or shortbread according to your preference
  • 1 guava jam (no guava jelly, do not confuse!)
  • 1 egg
  • Semi-skimmed milk
  1. Open the wrapper for the dough and let it thaw if it was stored in the freezer.
  2. Once softened, spread it out on the table using a rolling pin.
  3. Using a cookie cutter, make disks of about 10 cm.
  4. In two different bowls, keep on one side the egg yolk to which you will add 3 tablespoons of milk then stir, on the other the egg white.
  5. Take a teaspoon of guava jam and spread it over all the pre-cut circles without touching the edges.
  6. Using a brush, coat the edges finely with egg white so that it can facilitate the glue effect.
  7. Close the pâtés by folding it back on itself so as to obtain a half moon.
  8. Once closed, with the help of the brush, pass the egg yolk and milk mixture which will allow the gilding.
  9. Preheat the oven to around 180°C (thermostat 6).
  10. Once the oven is hot, stuff your pâtés on parchment paper placed on a tray in the oven.
  11. Leave to cook for about twenty minutes.
  12. Once browned, remove your pâtés from the oven and let cool for about 1/4 hour.
  13. Once cooled, you can enjoy your pâtés.
