4th of July Dessert Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1.8# bag Sugar Cookie Cutout Mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 12 TBSP butter, softened
  • 1 TBSP gf vanilla extract
  • 1-2 TBSP almond extract (optional)


Topping

  •  8 oz full fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  •  3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 TSP gf vanilla extract
  • 1-2 TBSP of milk

  • Strawberries (halved) 


Directions:
1.  Prepare sugar cookie mix as directed per package instructions.

2.  Using a rolling pin or hands spread the cookie batter onto a 9x13 cookie sheet. (Note: Because of the thickness of a dessert pizza, it may take longer than as directed. Mine took about 15 minutes on a 9x13 cookie sheet.)
3.  In a medium bowl, using a mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter together on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.
4.  Add the confectioners' sugar and 1 TBSP of milk-beat for 2 minutes.
5.  Add the vanilla and 1TBSP more of milk, if needed, to thin out-beat for 1 minute.
6.  Spread in a thick layer over cooled cookie crust & decorate with fruit.

ENJOY!
