I love having my kids involved in the kitchen and with food as much as possible! It is a fun way to spend time as a family and allow our kids to learn in various ways (even if they are only 1 and 2). We decided to make Fruit Pizzas, which allowed us to talk about different fruits, colors, and shapes! The kids were able to decorate their own fruit pizzas and loved every minute of it. The combination of a soft and buttery cookie with a creamy frosting and juicy fruit is all sorts of amazing.
Prepared sugar cookie dough
Cream cheese frosting
Shredded unsweetened coconut
Bake cookies according to package directions and allow to completely cool. Optionally, you can cut the cookies into fun shapes prior to baking.
While the cookies are baking, dice up your fruit and place in separate bowls. Also, prepare the sprinkles and coconut in separate bowls. Spread the cream cheese frosting on the cooled cookies.
Allow your kids to decorate with the various toppings to create mini fruit pizzas!
My girls love having the autonomy of being able to create things themselves. I’m not going to lie, I enjoyed creating my own just as much as they did! These are such a delicious treat!
