I love eating fruit and using fruit in desserts in the summer. The fruit tastes so much better and is more satisfying in season!
I’ve always admired fruit pizzas. I think they are such a genius dessert, and they are perfect for family gatherings. Everyone would enjoy them, even the kids! My son, who is 2.5 yearsold, loves fruit. I had some extra cut up fruit after making this and he ate it all!
So, I did my take on a fruit pizza, and made a sugar cookie “crust”and a cream cheese frosting to go with it. Let’s get into how to make this sugar cookie fruit pizza!
Take softened butter, shortening, and the sugar, and mix it together until it looks pale and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix it to combine.
Last, add all the dry ingredients: the flour, salt, baking powder, and cream of tartar. Mix it until it combines and forms a dough.
Wrap the dough in saran wrap and let it refrigerate for at least 2 hours. I made mine the day before and let it refrigerate overnight.
After it is refrigerated, roll it out to your desired thickness.I kept mine on the thin side, much thinner than I would do if it were a regular sugar cookie.
I then used a dinner plate and cut around the plate to cut a circle. Transfer it to your sheet tray or stoneware and bake it at 350 degreesF for about 15-18 minutes, or until the edges of the cookie start to turn golden brown.
Let the cookie completely cool before moving on.
The sauce of our fruit pizza is a cream cheese frosting.
Combine the softened cream cheese, powder sugar, vanilla,and milk. Mix it until it is smooth and well combined.
Spread the cream cheese frosting onto the cookie. Assemble cut up fruit in any kind of pattern you’d like! I went with a rainbow-like pattern, and used strawberries, oranges, kiwi, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.
Once all the fruit is on, make a glaze with the apricot jelly or apricot preserves and honey. This will give the fruit a beautiful shine, help them last longer, and makes the whole pizza overall look better. Brush it on all the fruit.
And there you have it! Your beautiful sugar cookie fruit pizza is ready to serve. Enjoy!
This Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza is a perfect dessert for a crowd. It is easy to make and loaded with fruit- so that makes it healthy right?
