Mini Fruit Pizza

I just love these. 
They are so yummy and beautiful. 
I guess they might be more of a summer treat, but I crave them year round.

Mini Fruit Pizza's
For the sugar cookies:
2/3 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar (to roll dough in before baking)

For the Cream cheese frosting:

2 oz. cream cheese
1.5 T butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1.5 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, add egg and vanilla, mix well, add dry ingredients and mix until incorporated.  Roll tablespoon or walnut size balls of dough in sugar and place on ungreased baking sheet.  Bake 8-9 minutes or just until small cracks appear (see photo) in cookies.  Be careful not to over bake. Makes about 18 cookies.

For the Frosting:  Cream butter and cream cheese together, add vanilla.  Mix in powdered sugar a little at a time until desired consistency, frost cookies and add your favoite fruits to the top.

Strawberry and Kiwi are delicious.  Bananas are really good too, but you have to be careful with them since they kind of get brown and mushy after sitting out.
