Welcome to the May Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month, I chose to make the Captain America Berry Tart based on this recipe.
I was inspired to make this recipe from this pin from My Very Best Baking. I decided not to use the glaze as it came out quite thick and I didn’t find it easy to drizzle and wouldn’t look as much like the shield with the glaze on the tart. We did keep the glaze and served a little with each piece of the tart and it is very tasty. I also needed to double the crust as I was not able to line the pan as directed with the original quantity. My recipe reflects the adjustments I made. The result was delicious and my family said it was definitely a repeat dessert.
I wanted to give it an Avengers theme to celebrate the new movie, The Avengers Infinity War. I chose inspiration from Captain America, my favorite hero.
