Cuban Pastelitos! My Cuban Store is excited to introduce fresh Gourmet Cuban baked goods. Cuban pastries or “Pastelitos”, have become a staple finger food of the South Florida community. Pastelitos are “puff pastries” which consist of thin crispy layers of crust and they are filled with rich fruit preserves, meats or cheeses.
The outer crust is extra crispy and glazed with a sugar coating that adds a delectable texture to the pastry. At almost every social gathering, you will find a series of snack trays filled with assorted varieties of these gourmet delights.
“Pastelitos de guayaba” (guava pastries) are among the more popular flavors, although the coconut filling as well as the cheese varieties also get a lot of well deserved attention. These pastries are rich, flavorful and easy to become addicted to; this is the type of snack that you will think about days after you have tried it, wishing that you had more.
Here in Miami, Pastelitos are a big rival to the doughnut; you can drive down any main road and find Cuban window cafeterias a few blocks away from each other and all of them serve these amazing on-the-go snacks paired up with Cuban coffee. We know that it is difficult to find these delicious pastries outside of South Florida that is why we decided to share them with the world. Order them here!
