Dessert Hack: Buy It, then DIY It

Let's talk about buying a dessert (in this case, that's by @ejdesserts), instead of making it, and adding your own personal spin on it with some fruit as the topper.

As with everything that I want to give over to you guys, there are no real "rules", but here are some fundamentals so you can recreate this at home.

What you need:

1. Assortment of berries, here I used blueberries, gooseberries, strawberries, and pom seeds.

2. A flat tart .

What to do:

1. Begin by placing bigger pieces of fruit along the perimeter of the tart at random intervals. Here, I used strawberries sliced down the middle.

2. Continue following the curve of the crust and layering in fruit so you have a mixture of textures. I use pomegranate seeds as a handy way to fill in blank spaces.

3. Consider cutting your fruit to fit the spaces that need filling- sometimes gooseberries are in quarters, other times thin slices, and yet others-halved.

4. Have fun with it! If you want to leave it as a half moon shape- I would taper off the ends, narrowing as you finish. Scatter some pomegranate seeds so that it doesn't end abruptly.

Above all-

Don't overthink it! Have fun with it!
