Mini Fruit Pizzas

Picture of Mini Fruit Pizzas
For New Years Eve, my mom decided to make fruit pizza.  She got out the sugar cookie dough and started cutting it up.  I wondered why since she was making a pizza and she said it was easier to get the dough flattened like that.  I then suggested we make mini fruit pizzas instead.  So we did and I thought I'd share with you.



NOTE: So I made these yesterday and brought them into work today.  I found out these do not keep well.  The liquid from the fruit soaks into the cookies and starts to disintegrate them.  Try to prepare these as close to the time you are going to eat them as possible.  You can bake the cookies ahead of time and possibly frost them, but wait to add the fruit.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
Ingredients:
  • 16 oz Strawberry (estimate)
  • 9 oz Blueberries (estimate)
  • 11 oz can of Mandarine Oranges
  • 4-5 Kiwifruits (estimate)
  • Sugar Cookie Dough
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1/2 c. Sugar
  • 1 pkg. Cream Cheese - softened
  • Strawberry Sauce (optional)
  • You can use whatever fruits you want!  Try out different combinations :)
I had to estimate how much of the kiwi, strawberries and blueberries I used because I prepared all of what I bought and just put the extra together into a nice fruit bowl.

Supplies:
  • Supplies to bake cookies
  • Knife and cutting board
  • Bowl and utensils to make frosting

Step 2: Cookie Crust

Time to mix up your sauce/frosting.

Take your cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and mix them all together.

Spread on cookies now or wait until before you want to serve them.

I am thinking that this would have been a great idea when my kids had friends over. They could each decorate their own to their taste. Might have to try this at next family get-together.

We made these today, but added more like two tablespoons of sugar to the frosting because it was all already pretty sweet. They turned out awesome! Great idea.

Sucess! Mine don't look half as good as yours, but they taste good!!

Thanks for reminding me why I should get on Instructables more!

Tasting good is the most important thing! I'm glad I could lure you back to the site :)

Thanks for the tip about their longevity! They look adorable!

Thanks! Yeah, sometimes you learn the hard way :(
I think that's the beauty of Instructables--we can learn the hard way and work things out, and then share so everyone else doesn't have to go through all the mistakes :-)
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  mistyp1 year ago
That is so so true! I swear most of my projects go amazingly wrong when working on them, but at least I know what to tell people not to do :)
At first I was confused, because of the title, and what it really is. But I will definitely try this, as I 'suspect' the combination fruit-cream cheese is very, very interesting...!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  ThamarBerber1 year ago
Thanks! What did you expect when you first read the title? I wasn't sure quite what to name it.
Reading the title and the 'Ible' I really expected pizzas. :D
Than reading the ingredients, I was really confused! LOL!
It looks very good!
I'll try, because I love the fruit you used.
Thanks! The fruit is very good! There are so many fruits you can use but I didn't want to overwhelm the cookie so I just went with the ones I liked the best.

When i first saw this, i started to laugh for some unknown reason but it looks delicious so i am definitely gonna make this.
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  AgentWolf1 year ago
I hope they taste great :) I'd love to know what fruits you try and I'm glad you laughed even if it is for no real reason. Laughing is such a fun thing and I think people should do it all the time just cause :)

I like a little garlic and oregano on my pizza but I don't think I will add it to this one..=)
The colors look so good to the eyes.
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  PitStoP1 year ago
Thanks! Garlic and oregano are good, but yeah, don't think they'd be too tasty on this pizza ;)
