Forget about making and rolling the dough because I have found the best shortcut for the most amazing Cuban Pie.
Crusty Guava and Cream Cheese Pie
- 1 refrigerated pie crust ( Pillsbury works the best for me)
- 1 8oz. package of Cream Cheese
- 1 package of Guava Paste 17.5 oz. (500 gr.)
- 1 egg
Now, cut the guava and the cream cheese in thin slices and distribute them all around the dough. Put guava first, then cream cheese, and repeat all around.
Take the other pie circle and roll it just a bit. Then, cover the cream cheese and guava with it. Tuck the edges of the upper crust under the lower crust, and press together lightly. Using the rim of the pie plate as a guide, create a fluted edge with your fingers. Using a sharp knife, cut five vents from the center of the pie, or just make any decorative cuts that you like. Brush the whole pie with an egg before baking to get a shiny, beautiful crust.
Bake it at 375 degrees for about 30 to 35 minutes.
Let it cool a bit before serving it. Enjoy it! Qué aproveche!
