Cuban pastries (known in Spanish as pasteles or pastelitos) are baked puff pastry-type pastries filled with sweet or savory fillings. Traditional fillings include cream cheese, guava (pastelito de guayaba) and cheese, pineapple, and coconut. The sweet fillings are made with sweetened fruit pulps. The cream cheese filling is also a slightly sweetened version of cream cheese, typically made to resemble the flavor and texture of a cheesecake.

Sounds like French toast. Looks like French toast. But it isn't. Torrejas are a Cuban dessert, not as well known as our flan. You can find them in some of the better Cuban restaurants in Miami. They are served very cold, one uncut slice per person, along with melao, a syrup made from sugar cane.
