Individual Fruit Pizza

I came up with this idea for a recent baby shower hosted at my house. I wanted something simple and I really wanted to have fruit. Fruit Pizza is nothing new; it is not an original idea. But a large platter of individual sized cookies topped with fresh fruit was a big hit!! Who knew? I honestly thought I was just making a filler for the table, but instead every single one of these were gone.  

Experiment with your fruit.  Use whatever you have or like.  Any berry would be delicious or mandarin oranges.  I think bananas would be good if they were going to be eaten very quickly before they could brown.  Honestly, I think any fruit combination would work and taste delicious.

Individual Fruit Pizza

Ingredients:

Refrigerated sugar cookie dough (or your favorite sugar cookie recipe)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Fruit for topping

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.  Roll out cookie dough to about 1/4 inch thick and cut circles with a small circle cookie cutter.  Bake cookies according to package directions.  Cool cookies completely on wire rack.

Beat together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Spread on each cookie and top with fruit.  Serve immediately.
