How to make Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza
Have I mentioned how much I truly love this sugar cookie recipe? Let me share it once again. These cookies are perfect.
They are soft and yet crispy on the outside. I love to make them using a pure vanilla extract but don't be fooled because Almond Extract is also fantastic in this recipe.
Gather all the necessary ingredients and supplies you might need. And I recommend weighing dry ingredients for accuracy. Measuring cups can be off as far as measurements go.
Preheat oven and prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mat. Cooking Spray can also be used.
In a large bowl using an electric mixer or use a stand mixer like a Bosch or Kitchen Aid cream together Butter and Coconut Oil with white sugar. Scrape sides of bowl as needed and cream until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and mix until combined. Drizzle Vegetable oil into butter mixture and cream. Add Vanilla Extract and milk.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients: powdered sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt and all purpose flour. Add dry ingredients a little at a time until combined.
To make cookies use a medium cookie scoop and place 1 scoop on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Add a second cookie dough scoop on top of the first and press down.
Using the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar press cookie dough flat. Edges will ruffle and crack forming a larger flat cookie.
Bake as direct and allow to cool on baking sheet for a minute before moving to cooling rack.
How to make Fruit Pizza Frosting
In a bowl cream butter and cream cheese together. Mixture will be thick. Add powdered sugar and continue to cream together.
Thin frosting by adding Vanilla Extract and milk a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.
Spread frosting on cooled cookies and top with diced fruit.
Fruit for Fruit Cookies
Wash and cut fruit into tidbit sizes to place on cookies. Strawberries, Oranges, Bananas, Kiwi, Grapes, Blueberries, or whatever you prefer.
Choose Fruit in season. Strawberries, Raspberries, Kiwi, Bananas, Mandarin Oranges, Pineapple, Blackberries, Blueberries, Grapes and Melon and the list can go on.
Dicing Fruit. Cut fruit into small tidbit sizes. When placed on a cookie smaller is better. Discard juices before placing fruit on top of cookie.
Baking Sheet. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat
Ingredients. Use softened butter and room temperature egg in this recipe for best results. Butter that has turned to mush is too soft and should not be used.
Plan Ahead. Bake cookies a day or 2 in advance and freeze until ready to enjoy. Then top with frosting and diced fruit.
We all love Fruit Pizza but what about a fun twist and try with a Peanut Butter frosting topped with Chocolate Chips or Chocolate Ganache. Now doesn't that sound wonderful too?
Storage Fruit Pizza Recipe
Plain sugar cookies can be stored in a sealed container for up to a week or frozen up to 3 months.
Fruit Pizza Cookies topped with frosting and fruit should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Cookies are best if enjoyed within 1-2 days.
This means you can easily make the cookies well in advance and then frost and top with fruit when ready to serve and enjoy.
When my boys were young I found it easiest to only add the kids favorite fruit on the cookie pizza recipe so they had exactly what they liked. As they grew up a little I was able to add more fruit and get them to try more options.
Sugar cookie crust is a favorite topped with a sweetened cream cheese frosting and fruit. It's a match made in heaven!
How to make a Large Fruit Cookie Recipe
I love the small individual cookie size but I know many also like to make a larger pizza cookie recipe. This recipe is made the same way.
Cookie dough can be spread onto a pizza pan, or even use a 9x13in baking dish. Spread dough in a greased baking dish before baking.
Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until edges are a light golden and center is set. Allow to fully cool before adding frosting or fruit.
