One of the best culinary hot spots Puerto Rico has to offer are their wonderful bakeries, locally referred to as panaderías . A wide-array of delicious traditional foods are available at these mom-and-pop run shops, ranging from the freshest of breads, pastries, sandwiches and coffee.
When it comes to Puerto Rican desserts and pastries, there is one I probably love even more than pastelillos de guayaba – quesitos. Quesitos have a nostalgic place in my heart as I have fond memories of eating this delicacy as a child in Puerto Rico and often asking my parents to buy me some when we visited a bakery. This Puerto Rican cheese puff pastry is super delicious and easy to make, something I wish I had known earlier!
