Fruit Pizza with Cream Cheese Frosting

Posted on
The recipe below for the frosting makes about 2 to 3 cups of cream cheese frosting. I did not use the entire thing on my cookie, but you could use the leftovers to use as a fruit dip, or even better, make some cinnamon rolls, or strawberry rolls if you have strawberries left and use the remaining frosting to slather all over the rolls. You’ll be in heaven.
ingredients
Cookie crust
  • ½ cup butter, unsalted
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1½ cup all purpose flour
Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1 pkg (8oz or 226 g) cream cheese
  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter, unsalted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 cups powdered sugar
Toppings
  • strawberries, sliced
  • blueberries
  • raspberries
  • kiwi, sliced
  • peaches, sliced
instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl mix together the all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of your mixer add the sugar and butter and beat for a couple minutes until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract and continue mixing until the egg is fully incorporated. Add the flour and mix for an additional 2 minutes. Take the cookie dough and form it into a ball. Place it over the prepared baking sheet. Roll the ball into a round large cookie or any shape you prefer. You might need to add some more flour over your roll or over the cookie so that it doesn’t stick.The cookie should be at least ¼ of an inch in thickness.
  4. Bake the cookie for about 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden. Let cool completely.
  5. In the meantime make the frosting by beating all the frosting ingredients in a mixer. Add more powdered sugar until you get the desired consistency.
  6. Once the cookie is completely cooled slather with the cream cheese frosting. I used about ⅔ of the frosting. Refrigerate the rest.
  7. Top with fruits and berries.
  8. You can slice the fruit pizza with a pizza cutter or a large knife.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
