A tradition that started with my childhood is giant, thick, soft, heart shaped cookies. My mom would decorate the table with candy and we would then frost and decorate our cookies as a family.
I took an idea from my sister, and we changed it up a bit. We still do a thick soft sugar cookie, but instead of decorating with candy, we make our own fruit pizza’s!
Make your favorite sugar cookie recipe and use a large heart shaped cookie cutter.
For decorating you will need -
- Cream Cheese
- Vanilla pudding
- Cool Whip or homemade whipped cream
- All of your favorite fruit sliced or cut!
For the layers, make vanilla pudding in one bowl, then in another make a sweet cheese by mixing cream cheese and honey.
Assemble your cookie with the cream cheese layer, then a layer of pudding, then a layer of cool whip/whipped cream.
Decorate will all of the fruit you ant and cover with more whipped cream. We always have a contest with you can build theirs the highest , the prettiest, and the coolest design.
I still with throw some candy on the table for fun and tradition, but I have to say, I much prefer fruit pizza to candy cookies!
