Personal Mini Fruit Pizzas

Nothing says it's almost summertime better than a scrumptious dessert made with fresh fruit, and these personal mini fruit pizzas are just that!  Not only is this a light tasting and flavorful dessert, but you also have the opportunity to garnish it with your favorite fruit.

Another wonderful thing about these little, addicting (yes, super addicting) cookies is that they're incredibly quick and very simple to make.  I ended up only having about an hour and a half to get these cookies baked and decorated, due to the fact that I'd been invited over to an impromptu dinner party.  At the time, it didn't seem like it could be done, but in the end, I actually had time to spare.  However, when I make these cookies again (and I definitely will), I think I'll try baking a batch of homemade sugar cookies.

Mini Personal Fruit Pizzas

Tollhouse sugar cookies

Cream Cheese Filling:
8 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
8 oz. fat free cool whip

Fruit of your choice:  (Some options include)
·        Strawberries
·        Mandarin oranges
·        Kiwi
·        Blueberries
·        Raspberries
·        Blackberries
·        Bananas
·        Pineapple
·        Etc.

Bake the sugar cookies according to package directions and then allow time to completely cool.

Place the cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl.  Next, using a hand held mixer beat the ingredients together until well combined and smooth.  Gently fold in the cool whip. 

Once ready, spread the mixture evenly over the cooled sugar cookies.  Top with desired fruit.  Serve immediately, or chill in the refrigerator until ready.
