Guava Pie: a Quick Desert

Submitted by JDiazAsper on 08/14/2010 – 6:59 am5 Comments

I think every hostess needs a few party tricks. My guava pie is one of my favorite. It’s so easy. It looks amazing and it’s vaguely Cubanish. I am Cuban American so Cubanish works well for me.

The hardest thing about this recipe might be finding the Guava paste locally. You can buy it on Amazon. You can try it with other jellies like Apricot. I am sure it will be tasty.

Ingredients for 2 Pies:

  • 1 Pie Philsbury Crust Package
  • 1 Goya Guava Tin
  • 1 egg folk


1.Heat the oven to 425

2. Let Pie crust warm up- 10 to 15mins

3.Open the Guava tin and split the Guava horizontally

4. Place the pie crust in two pie tins

5. Put a half of a Guava paste in each pie

6. Fold the sides as artsy as you want to

7. Use a paint brush to dab the egg wash

8. Cook for 30 to 35 mins. The crust should be brown and the Guava should be melted.

Be careful the guava gets extremely hot when cooked so let cool a good 15 mins before you serve.

Goes great solo or with ice cream. Slightly different but easy, my kind of recipe.

    Oye! I’m going to try this one tomorrow and let you know how it goes. I’m pretty bad with deserts but your recipe seems easy.
    Totally love the way you mix mobile technology with kitchen technology. At the end of the day, Apple is on of your most commonly used ingredient in this mobile kitchen. Isn’t it?

    I’m not much of a guava fan but perhaps in a pie it will taste better. @OfeliaNJ brought some over the other day and served it to me and the boys. Teen enjoyed it. It was harder for little one to accept. I think seeing it in a pie may make him give it another chance!

    Thanks for joining in the Sabroso Saturday meme!
