Ingredients for Cookie Dough

  • 2 Sticks of unsalted Butter at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Plain Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 Ts Vanilla or Pinch of Vanilla Powder

Ingredients for the filling

  • 5 oz Guava Paste
  • 1/4 Cup Cream Cheese cut into little pieces


  1. Preheat Oven to 300 Degrees F
  2. Dump all cookie dough ingredients into a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until a dough forms.
  3. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts and shape into discs. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. After time has elapsed, removed the dough out of the fridge working with one disc at a time.
  5. On a floured surface, place the dough into the center and with the help of a rolling pin, shape the dough into a circle making sure the thickness is as evenly as possible.
  6. With a small paring knife, cut the dough into 12 slices (just like a pizza)
  7. Add a small slice of Guava Pasta and cream cheese on the thicker side of each dough slice. Roll starting with the filling side until you get to the other end
  8. Place the cookies on a baking sheet fitted with parchment paper
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes until browned
  10. Remove from oven and let it cool on the cookie sheet or a baking rack
  11. ENJOY!

Recipe Notes

- Dough can be frozen. Just wrap each piece of dough in Saran Wrap and insert a plastic zip top bag. Don't forget to label your bag. To thaw simply leave in the fridge overnight.
- Dough can be made 2-3 in advance and placed in the fridge. To make it a little softer, leave it at room temperature for at least 30 minutes
- This cookie can be made with any other filling like chocolate spread and jam.
- Cookies should be stored in an airtight container and kept at room temperature up to a week.
