Oh, this is good! hehe…I had this recipe for a while, waiting to be tested and finally I made it. I can only say that it is delicious. I got the recipe on the site of the lovely Marly, and the recipe is delicious and simple, so good, especially when they’re hot and fresh from the oven, oh boy ! I recommend everyone to test it and I’m sure you will not be disappointed. Oh one tip, I liked to make them shaped into ball, because it gets easier to eat a lot…hehe.
500g all purpose flour
200g unsalted butter
1 cup milk
1 tbsp baking powder
250g guava paste (for the filling)
1 egg white (beaten, to brush the top)
2 cup crystallized sugar (to coat)
Slice the guava paste into small strips and reserve. Grease two 12×16 inches pan. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
Mix the dough ingredients, the flour, butter, milk and baking powder. Mix until smooth. Divide the dough in two and reserve one half in a plastic bag. Roll out one half on a floured surface into a rectangle (not to thin). Cut into smaller rectangles (3×2 inches), put a guava paste strip in the center and role up the dough and pinch edge together to seal. Brush the top of the biscuits with the egg white and coat only the top with the crystallized sugar. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes (or until the bottom of the biscuits turn brown). Repeat the process with the other half.
