Ingredients

Sugar Cookie Crust

  • 1 cup Butter room tempreture
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 ½ cups Flour
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Cream of Tartar

Cream Cheese Spread

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions

Making and Baking Sugar Cookie Crust

  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the room temperature butter for about a minute on medium speed. When it is smooth, add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy, or about 3 minutes.
  • Slowly add in the eggs and vanilla extract and mix again until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowls with a rubber spatula as needed.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add to the butter mixture and mix on low until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Cover your cookie dough and chill for 1 hour or overnight. (Without doing this, your cookie dough may spread and spill over the sides of the pan.)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9" round cake pan (or a 9"x13" baking dish) and pat your cookie dough into the bottom of a pan. It should be about ⅓-1/2" thick.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Allow the crust to cool completely before decorating.

Assembling the Fruit Pizza

  • While the crust is cooling, wash and cup up your fruit.
  • In a medium bowl, or using a stand mixer, beat the room temperature cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and beat again until light and fluffy, or about 2 minutes.
  • Spread a thick and even layer of cream cheese mixture over the cooled cookie.
  • Decorate your fruit pizza with your favorite fruit. Cut and serve. Enjoy!

Notes

Leftovers will keep well in the fridge for 2 days.
