Valentine’s Day Fruit Pizza

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. Basically, you’re just going to make a giant pan sugar cookie. Use your favorite cookie recipe, or do what I do and make it from a mix.  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.

  7. Naildesign – Ein Stil fasziniert die Damenwelt!
    Gelnägel sind ausnahmslos optimal in Form gehalten und
    gelten als Symbol für Gepflegtheit. Nur was verbirgt sich tatsächlich hinter dem
    Trend? Wer sich mit der Thematik “Nagelmodellage” auseinandersetzt, wird rapide von der Pallette an mannigfaltigen Fachwörtern sowie Zubehörteilen überrumpelt.
    Nageltattoos, Skelettblätter, Buffer, UV-Gel und & Co., sind geeignet den Lernwilligen schonmal einfach zu verwirren. Darum belehren unsere Nageldesigner über Thematiken rund um Kunstnägel.
    So stellen unsere Autoren auf unserer Homepage praktische
    Artikel wie beispielsweise „Sind Kunstnägel gesundheitsschädlich?“
    ebenso wie weitere hilfreiche Tipps. Weiterhin präsentieren wir darüber hinaus einige Schritt-für-Schritt-Erklärungen wie jeder Nail
    Art im Alleingang fertigen kann. Auf unserer Website liest jedermann sicherlich was er will.

  8. I like the idea. The whip is a nice ratio.. Instead of using a spoon and whipped cream cheese (I didn’t want to use more dishes) I took 1/2 block of an 8oz cr cheese and whipped it.. Added in the sugar and beat the heck out of it in the kitchen aid.. Once it was fluffy I added about 1/2 pint of whipping cream and eyeballed some vanilla.. Came out fabulous and I got to skip the extra dishes :)
