Festive Fruit Pizza

Happy holiday weekend! Almost every year I make a fruit pizza for the fourth of July! I love how you can arrange the fruit in so many different ways, and my favorite fruits happen to be very patriotic colors (strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries). Fruit pizza is the perfect summer treat because it's fresh and light, and perfect for a hot day. It is always a crowd pleaser!
This year I wanted to try something a little different and little more personalized instead of one big cookie you had to cut into. I decided to make individual little fruit pizzas. I used little springform pans to make them which can be found here (I used the smallest size) and they worked great! I stacked four of them into a cake and then did a couple more on the side - you can do it either way!

Here is the recipe:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cream of tarter

Bake 8-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 small pkg. (8 oz.) Cool Whip

Make sure the cookie crust is completely cooled before frosting. Arrange the fruit on top and enjoy! Keep refrigerated before you serve!

Have a safe 4th of July weekend!
