    westtextazzy's Note:

    These are wonderful little tropical treats that look like you've slaved all day--guests would be surprised to know how quickly and easily these come together! For a taste of the tropics, try Daisy Martinez's recipe, published in Everyday with Rachael Ray. Guava paste is made by Goya and can be found in most supermarkets in the Latin American section.

      Yum! Made as written except used lemon extract and a tiny bit of zest for the glaze, which I made a little thicker. The only thing I will change for next time is to slice the cream cheese thinner because it doesn't really melt. Thanks for posting, we love anything with guava paste.
