Citrus Sugar Cookie Mini Fruit Pizza Bar and a Tastefully Simple GIVEAWAY!

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Today I have a super quick and easy holiday-inspired treat for you.  
 It starts with this delicious Citrus Sugar Cookie Mix from Tastefully Simple.
 All you need to do is pour the mix into a large bowl
 Add in one egg and one stick of butter
 And give it a quick mix. Easy as that.
 Scoop it
 Out onto a large cookie sheet lined with a Silpat Mat or sprayed with cookie spray
 Smash them down a bit
 Take out the sugar packet that comes with the cookie mix
 And give each cookie a good sprinkle.
 Bake for about 8 minutes or until the edges just start to turn golden brown.  Remove from the cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack for the time being.
 While the cookies cool, work on the frosting. Add a block of cream cheese
 Powdered sugar
 And a bit of milk to a large bowl.
Give it a good whisk and set aside.
 Cut up some pretty fruit.  I used strawberries
And kiwi to be festive.  I also used raspberries as well but, they didn't need to be cut.  
 Then assemble your Citrus Sugar Cookie Bar.  Here is the base layer…the Citrus Sugar Cookies 
The cream cheese frosting
And the festive fruit. 
 Then when guests arrive (or your super helpful husband) they can assemble their own little sugar cookie to their taste.
 I mean come on…how festive is this!?
 Perfect for your next holiday party.
Yay for everything Christmas! : )

And I have to say these cookies are pretty fantastic, full of citrus flavor.  My dad tried them and called them "dunkers" since they are nice and crisp.  Perfect for the base of these Mini Fruit Pizzas.  Not to mention, the Citrus Sugar Cookie  is the Tastefully Simple product that raises $1 per box sold for Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry campaign!  Cookies for a good cause?! Sign me up!

Now that I have convinced you, would you like to win a box of this Citrus Sugar Cookie Mix® from Tastefully Simple to have your own Mini Fruit Pizza Bar?  Well, here is your chance!  Enter the giveaway using the widget below.  The giveaway starts now and goes until midnight on Sunday, December 22nd.  I will email the winner and if I don't hear from them within 24 hours, I will pick a new winner.

Citrus Sugar Cookie Mini Fruit Pizza Bar

1 Box Citrus Sugar Cookie Mix
1 egg
1 stick of room temperature butter
1 block cream cheese, at room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk
1 cup green grapes, sliced in half
2 kiwis, cut into bite sized pieces
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries, cut into bite sized pieces

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the  Citrus Sugar Cookie Mix® butter and egg into a large bowl.  Mix just until the dough comes together.  Scoop the cookie dough onto a Silpat Mat lined or sprayed with cooking spray cookie sheet.  Press down on each cookie slightly and sprinkle with the sugar that comes with the mix.

Bake for about 8 minutes or until the cookies start to turn golden brown around the edges.  Remove from the baking sheet and place on a wire cooing rack.

While the cookies cool, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of the milk in a medium bowl.  If the frosting is too thick, add a little more milk at a time until you reach a nice spreadable consistency.  Pour the frosting into a little jar and assemble your Citrus Sugar Cookie Mini Fruit Pizza Bar.

When guests arrive, allow them to frost their cookies and add the fruit to their taste.
