Recently, a friend made these and they were a big hit! I have always loved fruit pizzas, but I had never tried the mini – version. These are tasty and cute and fun to do with kids. They are simple because they do not require too many ingredients.
Start with sugar cookie dough. I used Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. Roll into 3/4 size balls and place each in a mini muffin tin. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes. I did not grease the tins.
After baking, make sure to let them cool for several minutes before removing from the pan (otherwise they will fall apart when trying to remove). They can be a bit difficult to remove. Once they have thoroughly cooled (about 5 minutes) then use a butter knife to gently lift out of the tin. Place on a wire rack and cool another 5 – 10 minutes.
- 1 tube Pillsbury sugar cookie dough
- 1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese (at room temperature)
- 1 extra large tub of cool whip
- Cut up fruit of your choice. I used blueberries, clementines, strawberries, and kiwi.
- Roll sugar cookie dough into ¾ inch balls.
- Place balls in mini muffin tins.
- Bake for about 8 minutes at 350 degrees.
- Let cool.
- Then remove from tin using a butter knife.
- Let cool another 5-10 minutes on a wire rack.
- Meanwhile, blend together cream cheese and cool whip.
- Using a plastic bag for piping, frost the mini-pizzas.
- Then garnish with fresh fruit.
Meanwhile, make the frosting. Allow the cream cheese to come to room temperature, and then add in the cool whip. Blend until thoroughly combined and fluffy. I do not like the gloppy glaze that sometimes can be put on the fruit pizza so I omitted it completely.
Then I used a small baggie and cut the corner for piping for the frosting.
Fill each mini muffin with the desired amount of frosting. Then add any type of fruit and place on top.
On hand, I had blueberries, clementines, strawberries, and kiwi. I cut the strawberries and kiwi into bit – sized portions.
Watch out for the frosting snitcher! We have one at our house. Any time she hears the blender running, she will show up asking for a taste – and sometimes there is no asking – just immediate taste testing. Ha!
Place fruit on top, and watch these disappear before your eyes!
