Patriotic Fruit Pizza Cookies

"My patriotic heart beats red, white and blue." - Author Unknown

These cookies are good for patriotic holidays, campaign events, etc. Any time you want to wave the flag and eat dessert at the same time.

Makes: about 32 cookies
  • 2 packages ready-made Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough
  • 2 containers Whipped Cream Cheese
  • Any flavor jam (strawberry or raspberry work best)
  • Fruit for topping (berries, etc.)
Slice dough into rounds, so that you get at least 16 slices from each package. Lay out on baking sheets and bake according to package directions, allow to cool. Spread a layer of whipped cream cheese on top of each cookie. Wash fruit thoroughly, dry, and lay in a small arrangement on the cookie, being careful not to completely cover the cream cheese (see picture). Melt 1/4 cup jam completely in the microwave or a small saucepan, adding more if needed, and brush the top of the fruit on each cookie. Serve immediately.
