My family is going to add fruit pizza to at least one of our menus this holiday weekend. The combination of blueberries, cherries, buttercream frosting and a giant chocolate cookie make it winner no matter what your party affiliation.
To make the frosting
- 1 package Buttercream Frosting Mix
- 4 tbsp melted butter
- 1/2 tbsp milk
Mix all ingredients together. Set aside until needed. (Your own favorite frosting may be substituted for this step)
- 1 package chocolate Moose Tracks Cookie Mix
- 1/2 CUP BUTTER
- 1 EGG
- 1 TBSP WATER
Blend all ingredients well. Dough will be stiff. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Press dough into a parchment lined or greased round pizza pan or 9x13 baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes on 375 f or until the cookie begins to crisp to your liking. Keep in the oven longer if necessary, but keep an eye on it.
(Your own favorite cookie mix may be substituted for this step).
To Make the Pizza
Spread the frosting on the cooled cookie. Score the cookie to mark the the upper right hand corner for the blueberries. In the remainder of the pizza, create horizontal lines with the cherries. For fruit, use approximately
- 2/3 cup blue berries
- 1 1/3 cup pitted cherries, halved
Chill pizza until ready to serve.
For Fruit strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and grapes
However you spend this Independence Day, be sure to rest relax and enjoy!
