Guava Cookie Recipe by Pretty Cute Party

Hi everyone!
My name is Wendy and I offer free party printables at Pretty Cute Party. When Kelsey approached me to guest post at Poofy Cheeks I was beyond excited. I met Kelsey at a blogging conference and I thoroughly enjoy her creativity and awesome posts. She's a sweetheart!

So, when she asked for a cookie recipe, I immediately thought about a guava cookie.
I live in Puerto Rico and we use guava paste for everything, from pastries and desserts, to sauces for pork and ribs.  I. Love. Guava.  Guava is my middle name. Got it? You can find guava paste in the hispanic\latin section of your supermarket. Goya is a very popular brand.

We have a version of a shortbread cookie that is very popular here, so I incorporated guava paste into the dough, and it turned out fabulous.

These cookies are very easy to make and are so delicious.  They are ideal for gift giving too!

For this post, I placed some cookies in a mason jar.  I cut a 2.25 inch circle of scrapbooking paper to decorate the lid, and attached a tag I designed with some baker's twine.  I love how it looks and I think this would be perfect as a Christmas present for my kids' teachers!

Of course, you can always bake them to enjoy at home, with a nice glass of milk...don't you think?

I truly hope you enjoy these cookies, and many thanks to Kelsey for letting me share this with her fabulous readers!
