Fruit Pizza recipes became popular years ago and for good reason. It didn’t matter what shape they were presented in, everyone wanted a slice. So why not enjoy on a soft Swig Sugar Cookie! That’s right, this recipe uses my Copycat Swig Sugar Cookie recipe as the crust for this cookie recipe. Brilliant I know!

Fruit Toppings are an endless list of ideas and creativity so let me give you a few pointers as to what I like and why. It just might help you in your decision making.

Fruit Pizza Sugar Cookies Topping Tips

  • Small pieces of fruit are best. It’s easier to take a bite without fruit falling off if fruit are cut into small bite size pieces.
  • Dip Sliced Bananas in Lemon Juice to prevent from browning. Nothing worse than a brown banana on a gorgeous Fruit Pizza Cookies
  • Use Fresh Fruit whenever possible. Fruit in season will make a delicious cookie
  • Customize Cookies by making everyone’s favorite fruit combination. Or choose fruit colors based on a theme. Red and Green Fruit for Christmas. Yellow and Orange Fruit for Fall.

How to make Fruit Pizza Cookies

For this recipe, I used my Bosch Universal Plus Mixer.  You can read why I love my Bosch and have grown up using a Bosch Mixer.  You can of course use a Hand Mixer.  Make sure you whip your ingredients well if using a hand mixer for best results.

  • Cream butter, Coconut Oil together and then add Vegetable Oil.  Cream together.  Add Dixie Crystals Sugar and Eggs.  Whip until light and fluffy.  Add Milk.
  • In a separate bowl combine Powdered Sugar, Baking Soda, Cream of Tartar, Salt, and Flour.  Mix to combine.
  • Add flour mixture a little at a time until fully incorporated.  The dough will be soft but not sticky.
  • Scoop dough using a medium-size #24 cookie scoop.  Place 2 scoops, one on top of the other, on greased cookie sheet. 
  • Use the bottom of a Mason Jar or Glass drinking glass and press cookie dough.  Dip into sugar and repeat on all cookies.  This helps flatten cookies and make the signature cracked edges of the sugar cookie.   It also gives each cookie a dusting of sugar for an added burst of flavor and texture
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. Do not over bake.  Cookies will be baked but no golden edges.  Do Not Over Bake.  Makes about 32 Large Cookies

Cream Cheese Frosting

In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese and powdered sugar using a hand mixer. Add Vanilla Extract and milk.

Preparing Fruit

Choose the fruit you want to use. I love a combination of fruit and berries. Wash fruit and cut into small bite size pieces for best results in placing on frosted sugar cookies.

Top each cookie with cream cheese frosting and add bite size pieces of fruit on top.

How to store and serve Fruit Pizza Cookies

Fruit Pizza Cookies should be stored in refrigerator and served chilled. I find it easiest to frost and top with fruit right before serving.
