If you’re looking for a real “WOW” menu item that is super-easy to prepare (under 30 minutes hands-on time) this Valentine’s Day Fruit Pizza is a perfect dish. The delectable combination of creamy and sweet will bea home run for your Valentine’s Day brunch, dessert table, or just breakfast with the kids. I promise there will be none left.
Your “pizza crust” is simply a giant sugar cookie. That’s it. People are amazed when they taste it and I tell them this. You’re going to elevate the crap out of this sugar cookie. You need to get it in the shape of a heart. I have no confidence in my ability to cut in any sort of symmetrical way, so I made myself a little pattern:
Lay the pattern over the cookie, and cut. I used just a plain steak knife, which looking back, probably wasn’t the best choice, since I ended up cutting my finger.
Ok, cookie — done. Now on to the fun part. The frosting. Take some thick, rich, delicious heavy whipping cream ( I am a big fan of Stonyfield brand) and beat it until it forms soft peaks. Ultimately, we want stiff peaks, but you have some more stuff to beat into it first.
Next, dump in 3 tablespoons of whipped cream cheese. When I say 3 tablespoons, I mean three of these guys:
Add in the sugar and the vanilla, and now whip till you have stiff peaks. You’re looking for a soft frosting consistency.
Frosting – done. Before you move on, you may have to do this:
And do it again. As a matter of fact reserve some of that frosting and use as a fruit dip. You won’t be sorry.
After you frost your cookie, it’s time to make it pretty. I used strawberries and raspberries, but you could really use any berries. Kiwi fruit would be fun too – maybe for St. Patrick’s Day? Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself. First, you get to devour this. You better bring it to a party or something because don’t blame me if you eat the entire thing yourself in one sitting. Not that I’ve done this. Just sayin.
There it is! So pretty. Do you think you’ll make this for Valentine’s Day?
- 1 Sugar Cookie Recipe ( I like this classic recipe)
- 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups assorted berries of your choice (I used raspberries and blueberries)
- Pour the sugar cookie batter into an 8 1/2" x 11" baking pan. Bake according to directions (may need a bit more time -- add a minute or two as you go).
- Bake and let cool.
- Whip the heavy cream until it forms soft peaks. Whip in the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. This is your frosting.
- Cut out the (cooled) cookie into the shape of a heart. As you can see above, I used a pattern because I don't trust my cutting skills.
- Frost the cooled cookie with the frosting you just mixed up. I find a spatula works really well.
- Decorate the heart with your berries. You can do any pattern you like.
