In celebration of National Cheesecake Day, I have decided to post this recipe for Guava Cheesecake.  I may not find time to make this today, but I have in the past, and it is ¡muy delícioso!  The frozen guava juice concentrate may be a little difficult to find, but if it is not available at places like Wal-Mart or Kroger in your area, try any specialty or Hispanic markets nearby. 


4-oz. vanilla wafers, crushed
2-Tbsp butter, melted

1 1/2 -lbs. cream cheese, softened
6 eggs
1 C frozen guava juice concentrate, thawed
3 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Mix the wafer crumbs with the butter.  Press into a springform pan.  Refrigerate while mixing the filling.

Beat the cream cheese until fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Beat until egg/cream cheese mixture is light.  Add concentrate, sugar, and flour; beat until well mixed.

Pour batter into pan.  Bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool at room temperature.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
