A New Twist on the Classic Fruit Pizza

A New Twist on the Classic Fruit PizzaSometimes the best desserts are the classic desserts. I was recently craving a refreshing fruit pizza, but knew my husband wouldn’t be home until late. If you have ever made a fruit pizza you know they get soggy in the middle after a night in the refrigerator. After a little research I found MINI FRUIT PIZZAS. I was so excited because they can be customized for your picky children (or husbands) so you don’t have to spend 10 minutes picking off strawberries that are “yucky” even though they ate them perfectly well yesterday. My husband went for all of the blueberries, I wanted strawberries and kiwi, and my son ate all of the blueberries first, and then devoured the cookie.

I was so excited about this new twist that I wanted to share it with the world. Goodbye soggy day old fruit pizza! Hello mini (anything mini is better anyways) fruit pizzas!

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 12 mins
Total Time: 27 mins

Ingredients:

  • refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • your favorite fruit toppings (we used strawberries, kiwi, and blueberries)

Directions:

  • Bake the sugar cookies as directed (I wanted shaped cookies, so I cut them with a cookie cutter)
  • In a medium size bowl, use an electric mixer to blend the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until smooth
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely
  • Spread a lovingly amount of the cream cheese mixture on the top of the sugar cookies
  • Chop the fruit into small pieces (we used kiwi, blueberries, and strawberries)
  • Top the Easy Mini Fruit Pizzas with the pieces of fruit
  • Eat immediately

We stored the blank cookies and icing mixture in separate sealed container to keep the freshness. The mixture needs to be refrigerated, but the cookies can stay on the counter if you dare.

Hi, my name is Kailey. I am a nurse, wife, and now a mom! My sweet Brady (any football fans?) was born in August 2018 and our lives will never be the same. I am a Knoxville native and absolutely love the area. Where else can you drive to a beach, major city, or mountains in less than 6 hours? I married my husband 2 years ago and we dated on and off since he was 16. We are both nurses so are our lives are crazy and unpredictable. I was an ICU nurse for 3 years. I have been fortunate to experience life being brought into this world as well as life being taken away. I have moved on from the ICU, but I will never forget some families I cared for. Yes, in the ICU you take care of much more than a patient. This is the worst day of many peoples lives and it's important you care for everyone. Nursing leaves an imprint on your heart no matter the type of nursing you chose. I am now a triage nurse, where I talk to people on the phone. While this is a completely different nursing than I have ever done, I am able to be a "stay at home mom" during the week and I work weekends from home. The sacrifice of working weekends is worth every day I spend with my son. If we aren't at work or home you will find us traveling or planning our next trip. We have a passion for traveling, our goal is to visit all 50 states. My "side hustle" is planning vacations for families. I have been a travel agent for 3 years and absolutely love it. At the end of the day all we have left are memories, I make sure each and every family creates lasting memories. When you don't find me working, planning vacations, or playing with my sweet boy, I will be by the pool. I'm most certainly not an expert on being a mom, but I hope to add some experiences and outlooks being a "millennial mom".
