Mini Fruit Pizzas


 

This is another dessert my daughter made this week. (Love that she is doing more baking this summer. Her siblings are loving it too. No more excuses that Mom didn't have time to make dessert.)

The crisp sugar cookie with layer of cream cheese and fruit is a refreshing summer treat. If you don't want to make a "mini" pizza spread the cookie dough onto a pizza pan and bake. This amount of dough will make two small sized pizzas.

We only used fresh strawberries since that is what we have right now but there are many other great fruit options. Prepare several kinds of fresh fruit and allow your children to decorate their own cookie.



Mini Fruit Pizzas

Sugar Cookie Crust

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk

Cream butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs and beat until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Chill dough for about an hour for ease in rolling.

Roll out dough on a floured counter until 1/4 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut round cookies and place on a baking sheet (or transfer a big round of dough to a pizza pan. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cool.

Cream Cheese Layer

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz whipped topping (or 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream whipped and sweetened)

Beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Fold in whipped topping. Spread on cooled sugar cookies.

Layer on fruit.
