Expert Tips

Look for guava preserves with the other jams and jellies or in the Hispanic section of the supermarket. If you can’t find guava preserves or jelly, substitute apple butter.

If you don’t have a food processor, crush the graham crackers in a resealable food-storage bag with a rolling pin or meat mallet, then mix the crumbs in a bowl with the sugar and melted butter.
