Pastelillos de Queso . . . 'volaos'

Anyone can make these easy and sinfully delicious pastelillos. Now you can buy the dough ready make at most Kroeger Stores or even Walmart. Buy Goya discs in packs of 10. They must be at room temperature and you can choose to use them 'as is' or use a rolling pin to stretch them a bit. What you need are the discs, the stuffing, and oil for frying (they must be fried to taste the same). Islanders use Queso de Bola Holandes, but any cheese that melts good will do. These were stuffed with Mozzarella. They can also be stuffed with traditional Guaya paste or Guava Paste and cheese, or picadillo meat (or crab meat). Stuff them, fry them, serve warm. If you can't find Goya discs then make the dough, it's easy. The recipe for the dough and step by step how to directions are found on our website. http://www.elboricua.com/Pastelillos_Volaos.html
