I’ve talked before about how everyone in our family has certain assignments we’re used to getting for family functions. One of the assignments my aunt ALWAYS gets is for her Fruit Pizzas (they are to-die-for and I’ll need to get that recipe on her asap!) Because we are used to have this yummy treat so often the entire family loves it, and we are always in the mood for Fruit Pizza. Rewind a few months ago where I saw a recipe on Pinterest from Is This Really My Life for Mini Fruit Pizzas. It reminded me of my Aunt Chris’ fruit pizzas and knew we had to give it a try. The result was HEAVENLY!! We had a feeling we’d like them already being fans of Fruit Pizza, but they’re just so cute when they’re Mini!
They reminded me of sugar cookies (which I LOVE) with fruit on top. That’s pretty much like combining two of my favorite things (sugar cookies and fruit) to make one AWESOME treat! And if you like Cream Cheese, you will LOVE the frosting that goes with it.
Mini Fruit Pizzas
- 2¾ cup flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1½ cups sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- Frosting Ingredients below
- sliced fruit
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder in a small bowl. Mix well.
- Cream softened butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until all mixed.
- Slowly add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture until well combined.
- Roll dough into 1.5 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 8-9 minutes or until edges are golden. Let cool.
- Make frosting by creaming together two softened 8 oz. cream cheese bars and ½ cup softened butter (1 stick). Add 2 teaspoons vanilla. Slowly add about 3 cups of powdered sugar. Add more or less sugar to get the consistency you desire.
- Spread over cookies and top with the fruit you like. ENJOY!
WARNING: Yummy looking pictures below. I seriously want to eat these NOW!
These look so divine right about now. Fruit Pizza always reminds me of the summer time. Note that these are best when served cold so be sure to keep these in the fridge until they’re ready to be devoured. One more reason why they are so great to eat in the summer when they are served cold.
I’ll try and track down the recipe for our regular Fruit Pizza and will share that as soon as I can.
