vegan Guava Cheese Turnovers

These vegan guava cheese turnovers are extremely delicious and quite addictive. I will definitely be using this recipe again :) I got the recipe from a blog called "your vegan mom".

Guava Cheese Turnovers
* 1 17.3-ounce package puff pastry sheets (I used Pepperidge Farms)
* about half a tin of Guava Paste, cut into thin small slices
* 2/3 cup raw cashews
* scant 2/3 cup plain soy yogurt or one 6-ounce container (I used WholeSoy)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* pinch salt

If your puff pastry is frozen, get it out of the freezer. Open it up
and let it thaw on the counter.

Cheese = Grind the cashews in a food processor to a a pretty fine meal. Add the yogurt, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.Process again until smooth and creamy.

Arrange a rack in the center of your oven, and preheat to 400 degrees.

When the pastry is pliable, unfold it on a floured counter or board,
and cut each sheet into four smaller squares.

Place a generous tablespoon of cheese onto the middle of each square.

Arrange a slice or two of guava paste on top of each dollop of cheese.

Fold over to make a triangle. Seal edges with the tines of a fork.
Cut a few little slits in the top of the pastry to allow steam to escape.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
