Guava Cheesecake

My hubby loves guava cheesecake and we haven't made it in several years. The farmers' market had a pound of guava for $2, so we made guava paste using the following recipe
We were able to make an 8x8 square of guava paste. This is a quarter.

To make the cheese cake we used the 9" graham cracker pre-made crusts because we didn't want the gluten flying around our kitchen.
For the cheesecake filling we used the following ingredients:

2 8-oz packages of cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sour cream
4 oz of guava paste cut into small cubes

Beat the sugar and cream cheese until smooth, about 3 minutes, scrapping the bowl as needed. Add one egg at a time mixing until smooth. Place the guava paste cubes on the pre-made crust evenly around the crust.
Bake at 325 for 50 minutes
For the topping we used guava paste and laid a quarter of the sheet on the the warm cheesecake to melt.
