Pastelitos de Guayaba y Queso - 2 Dozen
There’s a reason "Guava lovers swear by Vicky’s pastelito de guayaba.” (Eater Miami), each specialty Cuban pastry filled with guava and cheese is made with a family recipe that has been passed down from abuelito to abuelo.
Antonio and Gelasia Cao fell in love over 50 years ago while working at Cuba’s most renowned bakery at the time, La Vencedora. The couple married and migrated to Miami as political exiles, and soon had enough money saved up to buy a small bakery in Hialeah. In 1972, Antonio and Gelasia opened Vicky Bakery. They started making pastries the way they made them in Cuba, and they’ve been incredibly successful. To this day, Vicky Bakery hasn’t changed their recipes!
