In VBS last summer, my daughter took a cooking class, and they made these cute little fruit pizzas, and I have been wanting to make them ever since. They are sweet and a little bit tart, and beautiful to look at too!

, Mini Fruit Pizzas,

My daughter was sent home from VBS with a little recipe book, but I googled these to see who to give credit to for the recipe, and I suspect it is Pillsbury, although there are lots of variations on the world wide web. 

, Mini Fruit Pizzas,

You need around 16 sugar cookies, although if you use less “frosting” on each you could probably squeeze out a few more.
Use your favorite sugar cookie recipe, or for convenience, ready to bake ones from the grocery.

, Mini Fruit Pizzas,

Make up your sugar cookies (or bake according to package directions).

, Mini Fruit Pizzas,

Mix up your “frosting” using 8 ounces of cream cheese (I used the 1/3 less fat), 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice.

, Mini Fruit Pizzas,

Frost each cookie till you run out of frosting (around 16 cookies).

, Mini Fruit Pizzas,

For the fruit, you will need about 3 cups of washed and cut up fruit. Make sure it’s as dry as possible before putting on the cookies, so they won’t get soggy. Lost of different fruits will work: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, kiwi, mandarin oranges… Whatever you like.  I used raspberries, strawberries, kiwi and blueberries., Mini Fruit Pizzas,

The design is pretty much up to you and whatever you think looks pretty.

My sister and I “designed” a layout on the counter before we started decorating the cookies.
