Fruit Pizza

Fruit Pizza - sugar cookie crust, cream cheese frosting, and fresh fruit!

Seriously why did it take so long to make fruit pizza!?! And, I have another version so you'll probably see another one in the very near future.

I have to admit I did have a piece of this for breakfast because, well, fruit. I just focused on that and not the sugar cookie crust and cream cheese frosting....

Jacob loved this Fruit Pizza too. He proclaimed that I need to make it for our next house guests. So that means it's good and you should make it.

Fruit Pizza

1 package pre-made sugar cookie dough

12 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 - 11 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
1 - 11 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained
3 kiwis peeled and sliced
1/2 lb strawberries, cut into pieces

On a baking sheet or pizza tray, roll out sugar cookie dough and bake according to package directions. Set aside to cool completely before moving on.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla and until smooth (1-2 minutes). Spread on cooled cookie.

Arrange prepared fruit on top of cream cheese spread.

Best is served right away. The crust will become soft as it sits in the refrigerator, but still tastes yummy after a couple days.

Monster Crunch Bars - Another #SweetSurprise

Monster Cookie inspired bars - sooo good!

It's time for another #SweetSurprise. If you're new, I accept nominations for someone in your life that could use a Sweet Surprise. Then, once a month I review all the submissions and then I bake and mail baked goods to that person!

This month I'm baking for Kim who just had her second baby. Congrats, Kim! Let's see what Laura had to say about her nominee, Kim:

Kim is my best friend from high school and is getting ready to welcome baby #2 in March! She is a mom to a sweet 2 1/2 year old, as well as a busy doctor. A sweet treat would be the perfect surprise for her on maternity leave!

Chunky Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chunky Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Trying to write a blog post with Henry around is nearly impossible. He has to constantly touch me and/or the computer. His favorite thing to do is drop his toy on the keyboard so that random keys magically get pressed. It's super helpful and I never groan and cuss.....
