Jump to Recipe

Guava cream pie. I love guava and i love cream pies. This is a super fast dessert to make and it will make you look like a total pro.

Picture this: a cookie and nuts crust, with a not-so-sweet creamy filling and a sweet guava and dulce de leche topping, you definetely have to try it!!

Our recipe has a pie crust that bakes for about 10 min, only because I feel this way it becomes firmer, which is what I want when the time to cut it comes. But you can totally skip this part if you don´t mind the consistency and still get a wonderful pie.

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 4.8 oz (135 gr) unsalted butter soft or melted
  • Chopped nuts optional

For the cream cheese filling:

  • 8 oz (226 gr) cream cheese
  • 8.5 fl oz (250 ml) cream cold
  • 3/4 C confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 8.5 fl oz (250 ml) whipping cream

For the sweetened guavas:

  • 10 guavas small
  • 3/4 C granulated sugar

To garnish:

  • Dulce de leche to taste


For the crust:

  • Ground the two types of cookies in the blender or in a food processor until you get a fine powder, and then place that in a big bowl.
  • Add in the sugar, cinnamon, ginger and the nuts.
  • Add the butter and mix using your hands until a sort of dough forms.
  • Place this dough in a pie mold and flatten it. 
  • Bake at 350°F for 10 min. so that it turns gold.
  • Take out of the oven and let it cool down completely

For the cream filling:

  • In a bowl, beat the cream cheese and confectioners sugar (previously sifted) together. Incorporate the vanilla and mix again. 
  • Apart form that, beat the whipping cream until is semi-whipped. 
  • Incorporate the semi-whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture, careful not to lose the air in the mixture.  

For the sweetened guava:

  • Rinse the guavas. Cut them in half and take the seeds out. Then chop them into small pieces. 
  • Place the guavas along with the sugar in a medium hot pan. 
  • Mix a little and wait until a soft caramel forms. 
  • Take out of the fire and let it cool completely.

To assemble:

  • Put over the crust a layer of dulce de leche and a layer of guava.  
  • On top of that , pour the filling. then let it sit in the fridge for an hour, since i recommend it to be firm before adding the next layers.
  • Add  the rest of the guavas on top of the cream and garnish with enough dulce de leche. 
  • Let it cool for about 3 hours at least in the fridge.
