Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas

One of the best things about Spring and Summer are all the fresh fruits and vegetables. Sure you can get some of them during the Winter, but somehow they just seem to taste better during the warm weather. Fruit Pizzas recipes have been around for a long time, we all love the recipe that I make in a sheet pan and is great to serve a crowd. But what if you only have a few people to serve, maybe you are hosting a dinner party or just want a special dessert for a weeknight dinner?

These Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas are the perfect dessert for just those times. The recipe for the cream cheese spread and glaze tops about 12-18 cookies, depending on the size of your cookie and how much you use. It can easily be doubled though to serve a larger crowd or take to a potluck.

You can make this recipe as simple or complex as you like. Starting with a sugar cookie, you can either make them from scratch {we love this Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe}, purchase a tube of refrigerated sugar cookie dough and bake them, or even purchase Sugar Cookies from the bakery at your grocery store.

After the Sugar Cookies are cooled, then comes the perfect combination of cream cheese, powdered sugar and COOL WHIP whipped topping, giving the Fruit Pizzas just the right amount of sweetness.

Then the fruit…I used Strawberries, Kiwi and Blueberries. I love the flavor combination as well as the brightness the fruit added to the cookies.
