The final item I included with my bridal shower menu are these Mini Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas. These are basically fruit with fruit dip on top of a sugar cookie crust. A really tasty way to enjoy some fruit.

I have been making these fruit pizzas for years. I can’t believe that I haven’t shared this recipe with you before!

The base for the Mini Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza is my favorite no roll sugar cookies. They are the perfect amount of crisp with chewiness. The flavor of the cookie is also nice and buttery. They’re a hit any time I make them!

This cookie recipe comes from my sister-in-law. When my daughter was younger, my sister-in-law made them for her.

My daughter was scarfing down the cookies like crazy. My sister-in-law was telling me that the cookies she was eating came from a delicious recipe she makes all the time. Of course, I had to get it!

Now, you could use store bought dough in place of the homemade cookies. However, I must say it is well worth the extra time to make the sugar cookie recipe. The flavor and texture of these particular cookies are amazing combined with the cream cheese frosting and fruit!

  • FLOUR
  • BAKING SODA
  • BAKING POWER
  • BUTTER
  • SUGAR
  • EGG
  • VANILLA EXTRACT
  • CREAM CHEESE
  • COOL WHIP
  • VANILLA
  • POWDERED SUGAR
  • ASSORTED FRUIT FOR TOPPING

First you need to make the sugar cookie dough. You start by whisking together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a small bowl.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Then, beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients that you put together in the small bowl, until a soft dough forms.

Scoop the mixture onto ungreased cookie sheets. Then, bake at 325 for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Once you take them out of the oven, let them sit on the cookie sheet for two minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool.

Now, let’s make the cream cheese frosting! Using a hand mixer, combine some cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar together until well blended. Then, blend in the Cool Whip. Spread this frosting over the cooled cookies and then top with fruit.

You can use any kind of fruit you like. The more colorful the better! The main thing before you put the fruit on the cookies is to make sure it is dry. Otherwise, you can end up with a runny mess on top of the pizzas.

For canned fruit, be sure to drain it well. Then, place it in a paper towel lined container. You can do this a day before you assemble the pizzas.

For fresh fruit, wash and dry well. Then, place in a paper towel lined container. If you’re using a fruit that needs to be cut up, cut it up and then place it in a paper towel lined container. You can also do this the day before you plan to serve the fruit pizzas.

Assemble the pizzas just before serving. No one will be able to resist the sweetness of the sugar cookie base paired with the vibrant colors and flavors of the fruit!

Can I prepare the sugar cookies in advance and assemble the fruit pizza cookies later?
Yes, you can make the sugar cookies in advance. Store them in a sealed container at room temperature. Keep them until you’re ready to make the mini fruit pizzas. Assemble the pizzas shortly before serving to ensure that the cookies remain fresh and the toppings stay vibrant.

Can I make these mini fruit sugar cookie pizzas ahead of time for a party or gathering? You can prepare the sugar cookies and frosting in advance.

Store them separately until you are ready to assemble the mini pizzas. Make the pizzas right before your event to keep the cookies fresh and the fruit colorful. They make a colorful and festive addition to any party spread!

How should I store leftover mini fruit sugar cookie pizzas?
If you have any leftover sugar cookie pizzas, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The cookies may become slightly soft because of the moisture from the fruit, but they will still be delicious. Enjoy them within a day or two for the best taste and texture.

Can I use other fruits besides the ones suggested in the recipe?
Absolutely! Feel free to customize the toppings with your favorite fruits or whatever is in season. Other fruit options for mini sugar cookie pizzas are berries, grapes, apples, mangos, bananas, and peaches. Get creative and mix and match your favorite fruits for a colorful and flavorful presentation.
