Fruit Pizza Cookies

We went to our very first cookout of the season tonight.  It was lovely.  The sun was shining, the kids were running, the beer was cold, the food was delicious...perfection!  I offered to bring dessert, and decided to bring something that was fun for everyone to make and to eat!  This tasty treat would be a perfect addition to any cookout you are attending this year, actually it's perfect for any gathering with kids, because they love making their own tasty treat.  I used to make these in my classroom on occasion when I taught preschool.  I love making these with kids because it gets them excited about fruit.  Here's how to make them...

Fruit Pizza Cookies:

First, gather your ingredients: Cookies, icing, and a variety of fruit. 

Cut up the fruit into small pieces.

Ice cookies (great fine motor activity!)

Decorate your cookie with fruit pieces.

Admire your work (Ella made a "Sam" cookie - with strawberry red hair)

Max only likes pineapples.

Then chow down!
