Crumbly crust layered with sweet guava jam, tart passion fruit curd, and a fluffy meringue – the components to a delicious ending to any meal. You can use whatever jam is your current favorite but I decided to keep the tropical theme all throughout. Easy as pie!
So here’s the thing – I entered this recipe over at the Attune Foods Recipe Contest in the Pie category and as I type this, I’m crossing my fingers and toes that tomorrow (actually today since I’m posting this tomorrow!) I’m a winner. SO if you want to say a quick early morning prayer for my pie and I, please do. And if I don’t win, at least I had pie right?
This pie was inspired by my travels to the Dominican Republic, where you can get passion fruit in all shapes and sizes: fresh, dried, juice, concentrate, puree. In this recipe I used the concentrate, but you can certainly use puree which is easier to find in the US. One of my favorite companies for fruit purees is Perfect Puree, check them out. Actually, I’m so addicted to passion fruit I’ve had friends send it in the mail – I know, so illegal but hey, that’s what friend’s are for!
