Step 1

Heat oven to 400˚F. Using 1¾” diameter round cookie cutters, cut 4 circles in each puff pastry round (you will have 48 rounds). Divide cut pastry rounds evenly among baking trays fitted with parchment paper, leaving 1” spaces between each round.

Step 2

Bake until light golden brown and puffed, about 8 minutes. Using back of small spoon or melon baller, press down centers of hot pastries to make indentation.

Step 3

Place one piece each queso blanco and guava paste into each indentation. Bake until guava and cheese are soft and melted, about 8 minutes.

Step 4

Transfer pastries to cooling rack. Press walnut piece into each pastry. Let pastries sit until cool, about 10 minutes.
