Pastelitos de carne y queso


  • 2 cups of cooked picadillo

  • 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella

  • 1 package of puff pastry (thawed)

  • 1 egg


Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Onto a floured surface, roll out one sheet of puff pastry and using a biscuit cutter, cut out 9 circles. Whisk your egg and brush the edges of the puff pastry with the whisked egg.

To the center of each puff pastry circle add 1-2 tablespoons of picadillo. Roll out the other puff pastry sheet and using the same biscuit cutter, cut out 9 more circles. Carefully place a puff pastry circle over the picadillo and be sure to pinch the edges of the puff pastry to seal the pastry together.

Brush the top of the pastry with egg and place in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden.

Take them out of the oven & Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
