Mini Fruit Pizzas with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Mini Fruit Pizzas with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I’ve been intending on posting a fruit pizza recipe for the last two summers (the full pizza sized kind). I’m just now getting around to it, but I decided to just do the individual portions instead. It takes out the cutting step (which equals less mess) plus they seem easier to decorate this way. We had a combined family birthday party this past weekend (two of my brothers and I share a birthday week, all within 6 days of each other), and since everyone was bringing cakes I decided to add some cookies in there. Every single one of these got eaten in no time! Both kids and adults alike loved them. Really who could resist? You get this soft sugar cookie that just melts away in your mouth, then it’s topped with this most amazing, freshly lemon flavored cream cheese frosting, and they are finished off with plenty of fresh fruit. I’m sure I will be making these incredibly delicious cookies many more times this summer, especially with all the fresh fruit in season. It’s one of my favorite parts of summer, that abundance of fresh fruit. Try these soon, you know you’re going to love them!
