Easy and quick to make. Great for summer, can even make it look festive for the Fourth of July using blueberries and strawberries . I make this all year around , it’s always a big hit, and it’s veryeye-catching . ( if you give it a try , would love to see pictures) This is my go to recipe..
- 1-1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 cup Unsalted Butter at room temperature
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 8 oz Cream Cheese, softened at room temperature
- 1 cup Confectioner Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extacract
- Fresh Fruit
- strawberries blueberries pineapple little oranges Kiwi star fruit, stay away from melons, if you use bananas slices coat them in sugar so they don’t brown or add them on when serving
- Melons will make it soggy from the juices
I cheat and get the big bag of sugar cookies at Walmart and follow the directions on the bag. But I put a sugar cookie recipe on here as well.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12” non stick round pizza pan with non stick spray and set aside.
In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda, set aside.
In a large bowl cream together the butter and 1 cup of sugar, add the egg and vanilla and mix until creamy and combined.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until everything incorporated.
Press the cookie dough evenly in your greased pizza pan (make sure you flour your hands so they don’t stick to the cookie dough) and bake it for about 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Allow to cool completely.
In a large bowl, either using a spatula or a handheld electric whisk, cream together the cream cheese, vanilla, confectioner sugar
Smear the cream cheese mixture evenly over the cooled cookie crust and top it with desired fruits. My favorite fruits for this is kiwi, berries and star fruit.
Cheaper way- I used Can pineapples Chunks, and mandarin oranges drained well and some strawberries, and cheated with a quick easy bake sugar cookies bag from Walmart.
