Pasteles de Guayaba: Guava Pastries

1 pound cream cheese
1 pound butter, softened
1 pound flour
1 jar Vita Nuova Guava Marmalade
Sugar, for sprinkling

Blend the cream cheese, butter and flour until well mixed. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Roll out the dough into a 1/4-inch thick square. Cut the rolled dough into 16 to 20 squares. A little off center of each square, place 1 tablespoon Vita Nuova Guava Marmalade. Fold the dough over the guava marmalade, forming a triangle. Press the edges shut. Place the pasteles onto a cookie sheet and sprinkle them with a thin layer of sugar. Bake until the pasteles are evenly browned, about 25 minutes.
