Guava Curd Tart

The curd in this recipe is made with guava paste and cream cheese—two ingredients I don't often use in my baking, but which after much trial and error yielded the best result. My favorite brand of guava paste is Guayeco. It’s minimally processed and can be ordered online.


Ingredients:

For the curd:


400g guava paste (roughly one block, it's okay if it's a little over or under. The weight is on the package.)

3/4 cup H20

200g cream cheese (roughly one block, it's okay if it's a little over or under. The weight is on the package.)

1/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 /2 lemon, juiced


For the pate sucrée:


4 ounces butter, room temp

1/3 cup sugar
