Guava and Apple Dutch Pie


This pie came to me on a whim, I had left over guava paste and wanted to use it up. So I googled guava apple pie and found nothing, which always makes me giddy inside, because I love making new recipes. Let me put it to you this way, the pie smelled so delicious that I couldn’t wait to cut into it. This pie will change your life! It is an amalgam of flavors. I would of never thought of putting guava with apples, plus cardamon, but somehow it works! Put this in your rotation for the holidays, your family will love you for it, I’m already getting requests to make it again. So lets get started!

First things first make your dough, you can use my Skellington hand pie recipe or whatever pie dough recipe you like.

Now we are going to add the Guava paste over low heat with 2 tablespoons of water until it melts. Then let it cool while you are chopping your apples.


Peel and chop your apples, I like to use granny smith apples because everything is so sweet that you need that bit of tartness in the apples to balance all of the sweetness and add to your bowl, then add brown sugar, white sugar, salt, cinnamon and cardamom. Mix until combined and then set aside.


Lets make our crumble topping for the dutch pie, add the butter, cream cheese, flour, white sugar and brown sugar. I used my hands to really make the topping crumbly, it should resemble peas.


You are going to roll out your dough and place it in your pie pan, I decided not to crimp the edges, but instead crimp the crust with the tines of your fork. The streusel is the star of the show here.


Add the apples to the dough including any left over cinnamon mixture over the apples.


Then distribute the melted guava paste over the apple mixture evenly.


Finally add the streusel topping over the apple and guava, completely covering the surface.


Bake in a 350 F for 50 minutes to an hour. Allow to cool completely before cutting into it, otherwise your slice will look like mine. It will fall apart but it will be, oh so tasty. Enjoy. Hasta la proxima!
