4th of July Mini Fruit Pizza Stars

Happy Independence Day y’all! I think across the board, all Americans associate this holiday with barbeques, boating, fireworks, beer, and summer berry desserts.

This year, we have some more “Colorado-type” activities planned, but that didn’t stop me from making these cute mini fruit pizzas in case we swing by a barbecue between climbing, hiking, and paddle boarding. These are great for holiday gatherings because people can just grab and go when flowing through the buffet line – no need for cutting and scooping. And kids love them, too!

We all hate blog posts with an 8-page essay before the recipe, so without further ado, here you go!


Mini Fruit Pizza Stars

Mini Star Fruit Pizzas

Ingredients:

  • pre-made sugar cookie dough
  • 1 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 C powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C whipping cream, whipped
  • sliced strawberries
  • blueberries

 

Directions:

  1. Roll out your sugar cookie dough to desired thickness and cut into star shapes using a cookie cutter. Bake according to package directions. You can also use homemade cookie dough, like me, if you wish.
  2. Next, make the fruit dip spread. Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla at medium speed with an electric beater until fluffy. Fold in whipped cream; serve with fresh fruit.
  3. Once the cookies have cooled, spread each one with the fruit dip spread, and arrange the sliced fruit on top.
  4. Keep refrigerated until serving.
