- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

- 5 ounces cold cream cheese, cut into small pieces
- 3/4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
- 3 tablespoons cold water

- 1/2 cup guava jelly
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
- 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 teaspoons water
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in cream cheese and butter until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough is moistened. Knead in bowl until a ball forms; flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until easy to handle.
- 2. In a small bowl, combine the mangoes, jelly, mint and lemon peel; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water.
- 3. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness; cut into 4-in. circles. Spoon 2 teaspoons mango mixture into the center of each circle. Brush edges with water; fold dough over filling and seal with a fork. Brush with egg mixture; sprinkle with sugar.
- 4. Place on foil-lined baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 20-23 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
