Quick & Easy Fruit Pizza

Quick & Easy Fruit PizzaWe have staff meetings scheduled on Mondays where I work.  It just so happened that Sunday was one of my co-worker’s birthdays, so I said I would bring fruit pizza to the meeting.  And of course, not planning ahead, I woke up Monday morning with no ingredients to even MAKE fruit pizza.

sigh.

I thought about it for a minute and decided I would stop at the grocery store and see what I could find in a pinch.  I just made fruit pizza when we visited my family Easter Weekend, and knew I could manage something but was a little puzzled about a crust.  Raspberries & Strawberries were on sale, and I knew I could find a decent cream cheese dip.  The last fruit pizza I made had a shortbread crust, but shortbread cookies  are not cheap.  And then I found that Keebler makes a shortbread cookie, like they make their pecan sandies.  (not affiliate in any way with Keebler or any other cookie company.  I should look into that!)

SCORE!

Not only was it the perfect crust for a make-it-yourself fruit pizza, the cookies were on sale…

The great thing was that each of us could make our own to our own taste!  I bought a prepackaged cream cheese dip (which you could easily make and take if you plan ahead – cream cheese with powdered sugar or sugar substitute to taste and a splash of vanilla would do the trick!)

Ingredients
  • 1 package shortbread cookies
  • 1 container of cream cheese fruit dip
  • Assorted bite-sized fruits and berries
Instructions
  1. Grab a cookie. Top with a dollop of cream cheese dip. Add fresh fruit.
  2. ENJOY!

This would be fun for a baby shower, a wedding shower, a back yard BBQ or any other spring & summer event.  You could use a mix of red and blue berries and dress up a quick July 4th buffet.  Everybody can make their own individual bite-sized fruit pizza and add the fruit they like.

Easy & Quick!  My favorite kind of recipe!
