Add the butter into the flour mixture until well crumbled.
Add the eggs, then mix together with a spatula until it forms a shaggy dough. Cover with a tea towel and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Knead the dough until smooth.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently fold it onto itself. Divide the dough into six pieces, then shape each piece into rounds. Press an indentation into the center and then add a tablespoon of guava paste. Place the dough on a tray lined with parchment paper, allowing room to spread. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
This is a popular recipe in Columbia during the holidays. The Spanish make a version as well with other sweet fruit pastes. Optional: Sprinkle top of rolls with fine sugar before baking.
