Pavlova with Berries

Today is Memorial Day and I decided to Dessert it up. That’s right lots of sweets to remember the ones who have fallen. Then Alex and I drove these beauties to his parent’s house (an hour and a half away) to share them with all the family. However, note to self the summer skyr tart does not travel well. It slid not only off the plate, but right off it’s crust. Oh well the other two were a hit.
