Mini Guava Cheesecake

Mini Guava Cheesecake { Be What We Love}Happy New Year, everyone!! I hope 2015 is a good year for you and your friends & family! And to kick off 2015, here is a sweet and easy recipe for you.

My husband loves cheesecake, and really, who doesn’t. To reward him for all the hard work these last couple of weeks we’ve spend moving in and setting up our new home, I decided to make him a cheesecake with a Brazilian twist. The guava adds a tart and sweetness that goes great with the cheesecake.

Makes two 4 1/2 inch round cheesecakes.

Ingredients
  • Graham Cracker Crumbs – 2/3 cups
  • Cream Cheese (room temperature)  – 8 Ounces
  • Granulated Sugar – 6 Tablespoons
  • Butter (melted) – 2 1/2 Tablespoons
  • Eggs – 2
  • Greek Yogurt – 3 Tablespoons
  • Vanilla extract – 1/2 Teaspoon
  • Guava Paste (like this one) – 1/3 cup

Rustic Guava Cheesecake { Be What We Love}

Directions
  1. Mix 2tbs sugar and and graham cracker crumbs, then mix in melted butter
  2. Pack crumb mixture into 4″ or 4.5″ non-stick springform pans
  3. Cook crust in a 350 degree pre-heated oven for 6-8 minutes (this is optional, we tested one pre-cooked crust and one not, and they both turned out great)
  4. Whip the cream cheese, 4 tbs sugar, greek yogurt and vanilla extract together until there are no lumps. Fold the egg in. The batter will be a bit runny, that’s okay.
  5. Pour the batter over the crust.
  6. Bake 30-35 minutes on 350 F (pre-heated), remove and let cool for 90 minutes before putting it in the fridge to cool completely.
  7. Micro-wave the guava paste about 45 seconds (or heat on stovetop until melted)
  8. Remove cheesecake from pan and plate to serve
  9. Pour the melted guava paste over the cheesecake
  10. Enjoy!
