I’m back with yet another fruit pizza recipe. And really, this is so my speed today. Easy and delicious. I’ve been struggling this week and I have a heady Friday post coming later this week, assuming I can actually feel enough feels to write it. Plus, there’s a whole lot of baby and toddler whining this morning. So I’m being nice to myself today. A Toasted White Chocolate Mocha! Then, a trip to Aldi. Aldi is new to me. To be fair, Cassidy reminded me that we went to Aldi together about a decade ago, but apparently it didn’t impress us. This time? It impressed me. So much fruit to buy for my recipe! Really, everything!
Fruit Pizza Recipe: Christmas Tree Cookie
What You Need:
1 (17.5 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
More fruit for decorating (optional)
What You Do:
1 – First, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 – Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3 – On the parchment, press the cookie dough into desired shape. Use flour, powdered sugar, or parchment paper to keep your hands from sticking.
4 – Bake the cookie for 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the middle is not jiggly.
5 – Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before decorating.
6 – In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla, and then mix until smooth.
7 – Then, prepare the fruit for decorating the cookie – make sure fruit is washed, dried, and sliced (if needed).
8 – Evenly spread cream cheese mixture over the cookie.
9 – And then decorate as desired with fruit.
10 – Refrigerate until ready to serve, and it’s best if served immediately.
