Fruit Pizza Cookies

Fruit Pizza Cookies are individual servings of one of the best desserts out there! A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with a layer of an easy cream cheese frosting. You really can top these with any fruit, but it’s great to have a variety of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple and mandarine oranges. This creates a beautiful and fun rainbow dessert.

A little secret I’m keeping hidden in this recipe is the base of this cookie is actually my Snickerdoodle just without the cinnamon sugar. Other cookies that are pretty spectacular are my White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. My Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are some of my favorite, too. One of my most popular recipes is for my Circus Animal Sprinkle Cookies. It’s exceptionally good.

Notes

*To prevent the fruit from bleeding, prepare all fruit before baking cookies and set out on a paper towel.  This will allow most of the fruit juices to drain out and be absorbed by the paper towel.
