Fruit Pizza Cookies

Perfect Pairing:  4th of July

July is my favorite month of the year.  The weather is beautiful and it is always jam-packed with fun events.  It is also my birthday month.  I happen to be turning a “special” age this year.  Eeek. 
In other news, I heard 30 is the new 25.
I love the 4th of July and everything that goes with it.  We always have a big group at the lake and we play all day and then watch the fireworks over the water in the boat.  We usually go the tacky route and string up red, white, and blue twinkle lights and play John Philip Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever over the boat speakers.  It is always fun and memorable.
These cookies are a spin-off of the popular fruit pizza recipe, but in individual portions.  The base is store bought sugar cookie dough, so that can’t be any easier, and the spread has just 3 ingredients.  Top the cookies with some fresh fruit and you have an easy and crazy delicious dessert.
The Perfect Pairing for these lovelies is easy, 4th of July!  Use a combination of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries and you have a perfectly patriotic dessert that everyone will love.
