These easy CRUMBL fruit pizza cookies are made with a deliciously soft and melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookie base. It is then topped with a lemony cream cheese frosting and decorated with fresh fruits. It is so fresh that I would say it’s the ultimate summer cookie recipe!
Can you believe I almost didn’t get the CRUMBL fruit pizza cookie when they had it out? In my mind, it seemed so simple and plain so I wasn’t planning on grabbing it on my cookie run.
Until a fellow follower said that it was the best cookie she had ever tried. So obviously, I was convinced, I added it to my list and grabbed it a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised!
This is the best fruit pizza cookie recipe ever!
The Crumbl fruit pizza cookie was thick, yet soft and chewy. It was also topped with a slightly lemony cream cheese frosting and then decorated with some fresh fruits on top. The only thing I would change would be the amount of fruit that I would want on top.
This is what makes this recipe so perfect, you can literally decorate it as you please. Want more fruits, add more. Want fewer fruits, add fewer fruits. You’re your own master, my friend 🙂
This mini version of the very popular and very trendy fruit pizza is also perfect for parties and events. People can just grab and no as opposed to the need to slice and serve when it comes to larger fruit pizzas.
