Mini Fruit Pizzas

Tuesday. Yuck. I'm 99.9% certain Tuesdays are worse than Mondays. Last weekend is now merely a memory and this weekend seems so.far.away. Not to mention, yesterday was a doozy of a day. But, that's another post for another day.

I figured to perk my mood up - and hopefully yours, too - I'd share this fun little recipe.

Friday I mentioned I was planning to make mini fruit pizzas to share during our Super Bowl festivities. I was a little skeptical as to how these world turn out. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy these were to make and assemble. And, how these might have been mildly addicting (and that I may have eaten my weight in them - whoops).

Mini Fruit Pizzas
1 package Pillsbury pre-cut sugar cookie dough
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 container whipped cream
4 cups (approximately) fruit toppings of your choice

Preheat oven to 350.
Slice fruit into bite size pieces.
Cut each pre-cut sugar cookie in half.
Roll into balls.
Place balls in center of mini muffin tin.
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes.
Once removed from oven, allows cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes. Don't wait too long, or the cookies will be difficult to remove from the tin.
Place cookies on cooling rack.
Meanwhile, whip the softened cream cheese until smooth.
Beat in whipped cream until well blended.
Place frosting into a zip lock baggie, snip the tip, and pipe the frosting into the cookie cups.
Add fruit atop the frosting.
To keep my pizzas Super Bowl appropriate, I used blueberries and kiwi to represent the Seahawks, and blueberries and oranges to represent the Broncos. I'm a self-admitted nerd. :)

I think these might also make an appearance at Marcus' birthday party (which is less than two months away - what?!!).

Enjoy!
