Guava Tart


It's been really nice to make simple things like this tart, guavas are great and they can be really fresh and delicious but making a guava tart is a lot more fun than eating them plain, it's like a sweet guava curd

- 1 dough
- 6 guavas chopped
- 1 1/2 c. of sugar
- 7 egg yolks
- 1 1/4 c. of butter cubbed

1. Put guavas and 1/2 c. of sugar in a small pot and bring to boil until sugar dissolves, let it cool, make a puree and strain.

2. Put puree with remaining sugar in a medium pot and bring to boil until sugar dissolves, meanwhile beat egg yolks, add hot mixture slowly and then put everything back in the pot and cook until it thickens.

3. Remove from heat and add butter cubes one at a time mixing well. Pour mixture into crust and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Make dough and press it into a pie mold, bake for 15 minutes at 350°C
put weight on top so that the crust remains flat.

If you want you can put guava slices on the crust before you add the mixture
