  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, salt and baking powder in large bowl. Cut in lard with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add water, stirring until mixture forms a ball. Place on lightly floured surface; knead 5 min. or until dough is smooth and elastic. Divide into 16 equal balls. Roll out each ball to 4-inch circle; set aside.
  • Mix cream cheese, guava, peanuts and 2 Tbsp. of the honey. Spoon about 1 Tbsp. of the cream cheese mixture onto center of each dough circle. Brush edge of each circle with some of the egg; fold in half. Press edges together with fork to seal. Place on greased baking sheet. Lightly brush tops with remaining egg.
  • Bake 20 min. or until golden brown. Serve drizzled with the remaining 2 Tbsp. honey.
