RAINBOW FRUIT PIZZA RECIPE
Take a little twist on the sugar cookie fruit pizza for one of your St Patricks Day recipes this year. A little healthier way to cure your sweet tooth.
- 3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 4 3/4 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
Amazing Whipped Vanilla Frosting
- 1 cup salted butter, room temperature
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 3-4 cups Powdered Sugar
- 1-2 tsp Milk
- 1-16 oz. tub of Cool Whip
Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe
Combine soda and sour cream in mixer.
Then add the rest of the wet ingredients and mix well.
Mix in the dry ingredients.
Roll out dough till it is about 1/4 inch thick, on a lightly floured surface and cut out with cookie cutters into desired shapes.
I cut out circles that were 4 inches in size. This is be better if you are making rainbows.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees or until lightly browned.
Amazing Whipped Vanilla Frosting
Use room temperature butter (otherwise you will get chunks of butter in your frosting), place it into mixer and whip together until nice and smooth.
Then add 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Gradually add about 3-4 cups of powdered sugar (Confectioner’s sugar).
It will be a bit chunky and not very smooth.
Gradually add 1 teaspoon of milk while mixing frosting.
If it is still not the consistency you desire, add another teaspoon of milk until you get a nice thick frosting that is smooth.
Then fold in 1 tub of Cool Whip.
Serve immediately or keep in refrigerator before serving.
These Soft Sugar Cookies are also so easy to freeze. You can make them ahead of time and freeze a large batch of them to frost for later. You can also freeze the dough. Just set it out on the counter and let it thaw before rolling it out to cut the shapes later.
In this case I wanted fruit that was the color of the rainbow. I used Raspberries, oranges chopped, crushed pineapple, kiwi, and blueberries.
ST. PATRICK’S DAY
These got pretty rave reviews from my built-in taste testers. But unfortunately these fall in the category of things I can no longer eat….but that is okay…I was happy just eating the rest of this colorful plate of fruit for my dessert. Everyone was happy and you can’ t beat that…and you have another addition to your simple St Patrick’s Day recipes.
