Thoughts

I really like mint things, cakes, ice cream, milkshakes. If it’s mint, I love it! What I also really like are tarts, so naturally, I had to combine the two and create a mint tart. I based this recipe off of recipes for other tarts I have made in the past.

This turned out to be a wonderful creation for my mom’s birthday. It was a very refreshing dessert that is much less sweet then a traditional birthday cake. The flavor of mint is strong, but you can adjust that based on your liking. You can make it less or even more minty. It is all up to you.

The filling is very versatile, so you can create all sorts of flavors from it by adding different extracts. You can also just leave it without any extracts, and it can be served just as a creamy home made pudding. It is delicious in all forms.

Let me know in the comments how you choose to use this filling, and if you try making the tart, make sure to share your thoughts!

Enjoy!

  1. What you’ve done is to create a mint quiche. Absolutely inspired! People have been baking for thousands of years now, and consequently, it’s not often someone offers something new. You have.

    Really, genius is little more than passionate creativity, and you have it in abundance. Not only do you possess the skills, but great ideas animate them. Mmmmmmm…mint!
