Mini Fruit Pizzas

Fruit pizza has always been one of my family’s favorite desserts. Recently, I went to a dessert party and wanted to bring something fun and fresh, but something that didn’t require a fork. Thus, I miniaturized the fruit pizza! There are many variations of this recipe and it can be adapted for the fruits that are in season, but this version is one of my favorites.

Two tubes refrigerated sugar cookie dough 
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. orange marmalade or peach preserves per cookie
Strawberries, thinly sliced
Mandarin oranges

Prepare sugar cookies per package directions; let cool completely.

In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla with electric mixer, until smooth. Spread each cooled cookie with cream cheese mixture. Gently spread marmalade or preserves onto cream cheese layer. Spread prepared fruit onto cookies as toppings. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
