Have you ever tried Fruit Pizza? We love it! This year I decided to make it for our Family Home Evening last night to go along with our Patriotic Lesson. It was a hit. And the best part is that it is super easy to make.
Simply take your favorite sugar cookie recipe, I used this recipe here, and then roll out your cookie dough into a nice circle. Place the dough onto a round pizza baking sheet and bake in the oven at your recipes temperature for about 12-15 min. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Frost the cookie with your favorite cream cheese frosting or Cool Whip and then top with the fruit of your choice. (I used a cookie cutter to get a nice star shape and then used that to make the blueberry star).
I love this dessert, but especially in the summer as it is light and refreshing. We have also made these before on individual round cookies. Then had a sort of fruit pizza cookie bar. We had various cut, fresh fruit and let each person create their own by picking and choosing the fruit combination on their individual cookie. Such a fun idea for showers too!
