Captain America Pie Making:

We start by preparing our shortbread dough by mixing the butter cut into pieces, flour, sugar and almond powder. When the mixture reaches a sandy consistency, add the egg and mix again until you get a ball of dough.

Spread the ball between two sheets of parchment paper and chill for 30 minutes.

Once the dough has cooled, place it in your baking pan or pie plate. Prick the bottom with a fork in several places and bake it for about 20 minutes at 320°F. Let it cool and gently turn out onto your serving platter.

The bottom of the pie is cooked

While the pie crust is baking, you can prepare the star by melting the white chocolate and pouring it into a star-shaped mold or cookie cutter. Then let your star harden in a cool place. For my part, I made several stars of different sizes, not knowing which one would fit the final size of the pie.

The white chocolate star

As soon as your pastry has cooled down, you can whip the cream and mascarpone into a whipped cream by adding the amount of powdered sugar you like. When the whipped cream is firm, pour it into a piping bag (you don’t need to use a piping bag, just cut the end of the plastic bag) and pipe the whipped cream onto the pie crust.

Now all you have to do is arrange the fruit: first the strawberries on the outer edge of the pie, then the bananas, raspberries and finally the blueberries in the center. Finally, when the chocolate star has hardened, carefully remove it from the mold and place it in the center of the pie. The dessert must, of course, be kept in a cool place until tasted.

the pie is finished
