  • Combine flour, sugar, lime zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Fit pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate. Arrange guava slices on the bottom of the prepared pie crust, mounding slices of guava in the center of the crust. Sprinkle guavas with flour and sugar mixture. Drizzle pie filling with lime juice and dot with butter pieces.

  • Cover pie filling with the second pie crust and crimp the edges together. Make several slits in the top crust to allow the steam to escape.

  • Bake the pie in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees (175 degrees C) and bake until the filling is tender and the crust is golden, 30 to 40 minutes.

Fast and Easy! The ingredients complimented the fruit well. On the next batch of pies I added a 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon then precooked 2 cups of fruit and thickened using 1/4 cup water to 1/3 cup flour, bring to a rolling boil stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool approx. 10 mins., build pie as above less 2 cups fruit. Lastly add precooked fruit mixture, lemon, juice and butter cubes, cover with crust and cook per directions. This makes the pie thick and easy to serve. Read More

Followed the recommendation of a previous reviewer and upped the cinnamon an additional 1/2 tsp. I would also recommend some flour in the pie to thicken the juices. Turned out wonderful. I did cheat an add 1 gala apple in because I was getting tired of cutting and deseeding guava. Glad I did because I realized I'm not a big fan of Guava. I also subbed 1/2 cup in place of the 1/2 sugar. All turned out great! Read More

I didn't use flour because of a gluten allergy so I just substituted with an egg.I also dubled the cinimon because I didn't have nutmeg. Read More
