Mini Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza




My Girlie Girl and I were invited to  cousin Amanda’s bridal shower a few Saturdays ago.  Exciting news right?  I’m laughing as I re-read this.

Can I take just a minute of your time to tell you all about Amanda?

This gal. This beer drinkin’, f-bomb droppin’ kind hearted sweetheart of a gal -Amanda.  Oh, and her favorite word is “Amazeballs

She’s marrying a really sweet guy, the Love of Her Life-

Mr Brandon.

And they are going to live happily ever after with their ducks named Polly, Dolly, Tex and Rex.

I don’t make this stuff up people

We were asked to bring a dessert to the shower since the family was preparing all the food themselves. (Which I love, by the way.)  There’s always such an awesome variety of meats, salads, and of course desserts to fill the ‘ole chinet paper plate up with.  Sometimes I have to make two trips to get it all!

Yes, I am that gal.

I decided to bring mini fruit pizzas.   I dug out my Mother In Laws recipe from many, many moons ago. And was a little more than surprised when I found it in a little recipe tin full of cards from when we were first married in 1993.

She used to make fruit pizza upon request, as a “birthday cake”, candles and all.

I cheated the recipe a little by using pre made sugar cookie dough, which I probably won’t do next time.  The pre made sugar cookies were a touch too sweet.

Mini Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza


  • 24 Count Pre Made Sugar Cookie Dough (or your favorite homemade sugar cookies)
  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • Fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries
  • Glaze
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Corn Starch


  1. Bake sugar cookies as directed. Cool.
  2. Blend together softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth, add vanilla extract.
  3. Spread cream cheese mixture on each cookie. Chill while making glaze.
  4. To make glaze, combine sugar, water, orange juice, lemon juice, and cornstarch in saucepan. Boil for 2 minutes or until liquid is no longer cloudy (clear). Cool.
  5. Garnish chilled cookies with fresh berries. Drizzle each cookie with approx. tablespoon of glaze.


Here’s to Amanda & Brandon!  (polly, dolly, tex, and rex too)

Slow Cooker Chunky Monkey Lava Cake

Sometimes inspiration for my slow cooker recipes come in the form of  very brown, unattractive things.

I’m talk in’ about bananas.

Slow Cooker 3 Ingredient Chocolate Caramel Fudge

My house is slightly divided on the whole fudge situation.  My son and I are super uber chocolate lovers.  Never in my life have I ever said “that dessert was good but it was too chocolatey “.   Straight up. Never.

Mom’s Best Marshmallow & Coconut Fruit Salad

I was just informed by my Dear Mother that so far this year’s Easter menu will include ham, mashed potatoes, and mom’s famous deviled eggs.  It’s now my job to figure out what to bring to to go along with the rest of the food.

Banana Cream Pie from Scratch

Every now and then I get that itty bitty sinking feeling in my gut when my boy comes home from college.
