Fruit Pizza Cookies

It’s February and I’m ready for springtime fruit desserts. On a cold, snowy day, it’s fun to stay inside the warm and cozy house and take pictures of brightly colored fruit desserts.

I’m so very grateful to live in a place where we have access to these fruits year-round!

While I am honestly enjoying the most recent ten or twelve inches of snow on the ground, it’s still fun to imagine enjoying these sugar cookie fruit pizza cookies on a bright and sunny spring day.

So I’m enjoying the gorgeousness of the snow and while staying warm inside taking pictures. I’ll take all the pretty whiteness while we wait for spring.

These Sugar Cookie Bars are another fun treat that we enjoy all year long.

Fruit Pizza Cookies

  1. To make the cookies, preheat the oven to 300 F. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and shorting. Cream in the sugar, baking powder, and salt until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat in well. Stir in the flour.
  2. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 min. Do not let them brown. Let them cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Remove from the tray and let cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, make the cheesecake spread. Beat the cream cheese with the sugar until light and smooth. Pour in the heavy cream and vanilla.
  4. Beginning with the mixer on slow speed, start to beat in the cream. Increase the speed of the mixer gradually until the mixture thickens.
  5. Spread the cookies with a bit of cream cheese and top with fresh fruit. These are best within a day or two of making them.

    For the cream cheese frosting it just says “1/2 powdered sugar.” Does this mean 1/2 cup or 1/2 a box or what?!

  2. Monica says

    Is there a liquid missing from the recipe? My dough was crumbly and the balls stayed in balls when baked.

    • laura scott says

      I had the same problem they’re very crumby and do not roll. I think instead of egg yolks we should’ve probably added whole eggs??

  3. BreAnne Larsen says

    For the oven temperature it says 300 degress, this just seems low to me. Will it bake alright?

    These did not come out good for me. The dough was very crumbly and wouldn’t stick together. I didn’t alter the recipe by any means and used very softened butter (not melted). The cream cheese mixture was fine but the sugar cookie was a mess, I ended up adding some more melted butter to roll the dough into balls, and they didn’t bake nicely either, it was an all around mess.

    These cookies were delicious. I think people might not be creaming the ingredients as long as directed in the recipe. If the dough is crumbly, just keep beating it. It works.
