  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In small bowl, beat Filling ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
  • 3
    Unroll pie crust onto floured work surface. Roll out crust with rolling pin; cut into 4-inch squares. Place about 2 tablespoons filling in center of each pie crust square. Fold crust over filling to form triangle; press edges with fork to seal. Place on cookie sheet.
  • 4
    In small shallow dish, beat egg white and water. In another small shallow dish, mix 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Brush crust triangles with Egg Wash; roll in Cinnamon-Sugar Coating. (The sugar coating is to taste, but ideally a quesito has a nice sugary crust that crunches when one takes a bite.) Return to cookie sheet.
  • 5
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, combine Orange Glaze ingredients. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat.
  • 6
    Remove quesitos from oven. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Brush moderate amount of glaze over each quesito. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Doubling the filling and cinnamon-sugar coating and using the other pie crust from the box will double this recipe.
  • Puff pastry can replace the pie crust for an even flakier pastry.
  • Do not overbake or the filling might ooze out.
