Hi fellow dessert lovers! I have an admitted church/civic association cookbook addiction/sickness - so chock full of good recipes (save the grody congealed ring salads, that is)! I must have at least 12 of those babies. I came across this recipe in one of them and have used it twice.  If you love guava and pecan pie, this is the ticket.  I am now swearing by this recipe!  Being from Tampa, guava paste and similar items are pretty easy to come by in my local supermarket....it could be difficult in other places but when in doubt, check your friendly local Hispanic grocer.  Good produce there, too.  Enjoy!

Guava Pecan Pie

1 Cup guava paste or guava jelly (I prefer the paste - cheaper and there's enough to make at least 2 pies from one tin of guava paste)
1 cup light brown sugar
4 eggs
4 tbsp. butter (I used Smart Balance 50/50 and it still turned out great; although, you can't beat the real stuff)
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 unbaked 9" pie crust (I like the Pillsbury Pet Ritz frozen pie crusts - nice and buttery)

Preheat oven to 450.  Nuke guava paste in microwave-safe bowl in microwave for about 1 minute with a little water sprinkled on top until jam-like - it will blend faster that way.  Blend guava paste with brown sugar, eggs and butter together with electric mixer.  Pour into pie crust.  Top with as many pecans as you wish.  Bake at 450 for 10 minutes.  Then lower heat to 325 and continue baking for 25-30 minutes.  Terrific served warm to room temperature with a little whipped cream on top.  Now we're talkin'.
