Captain America Berry Tart

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.

    My guys are huge Marvel fans; such a fun twist on a berry tart. Pinned.

  7. Yours is prettier than the inspiration. I think I like it better without the glaze. Looks scrumptious! Almost to pretty to eat but I think we can force ourselves. Pinning to my Red White and Blue board

  8. Now, this would be great at a Memorial Day or Fourth of July cookout! It’s almost too pretty to cut into, but I’m sure I could force myself to eat a slice (or two!)

  9. Both of my guys would love this! Pinning 🙂

  10. I like the different take on the patriotic cheesecake! I have yet to see the movie, but my son has been telling me all about it. He’s away at college & was my movie going partner. Pinning!

    1. I think you will enjoy the movie, hopefully your son/movie partner will be home soon and you can convince him to go with you!

  11. This looks so delicious! Pinning!

  12. This sounds wonderful. I may even have all the ingredients to try making this. Also love how you used blueberries to make the star outline.
