Quesito is a cheese-filled pastry twist from Puerto Rico.[1]


One of the most popular pastries of Puerto Rico. The cheese is usually whipped with vanilla, eggs, and sugar. The cheese can also be whipped with guava, papaya and other tropical fruit preserves. The mixture is stuffed into a dough that resembles puff pastry, coated in a sugary caramelized syrup, and baked. Quesitos are sold at bakeries and "bomboneras" (literally cozy sweet boxes, a word also used to refer to sweet shops selling this type of item).
