Hey Folks! Jackie here from TheSeasideBaker.com, and I’m bake with another simple yet delicious recipe!
So it’s funny how things work. About a month and a half ago, I was complaining how I was so over driving and couldn’t wait until my kids were out of school for the summer. Now, I can not wait for back to school! Please tell me I’m not the only one.
I was so proud of myself this spring as I thought I had a wonderful arsenal of crafts to keep my kinds busy and entertained this summer.
Well, apparently my arsenal was not that big as they went through all of the activities within 2 weeks. That’s when the “I’m bored” started.
In an effort to not only amuse them, but also feed them, I put my 10 year old to the task of making this Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza.
I’m a firm believer in having the kids help out in the kitchen and all of my children love to cook. I put them to work making the dough, cutting the fruit, then decorating the pizza, giving me a few hours to work in peace!
Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza is a great dessert on a hot day. Despite being a fun kid’s edible activity, it certainly appeals to adults too.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, its hard to turn down a slice of a giant cookie covered in frosting and topped with sweet fruit!
