Spread about 2 tsp guava paste or more on each quadrant. Spread about 2 tsp cream cheese on top of guava paste. Fold pastry over to make triangle. Seal edges with a fork. Repeat until all puff pastry is used up.
Place each pastry on baking sheet. Brush egg wash over each turnover then use a knife to make 3 slits on each.
Bake turnovers for 18-22 minutes until golden brown. Once cooled, dust powdered sugar over top.

Personal Notes:
I did not use all of the guava paste or cream cheese. It is too much for just two sheets, but not enough for 4 sheets. Remainder may be frozen for future use.
