It’s Valentine’s week, time to splurge a little. I haven’t cranked up my oven to bake anything sweet since the holidays. My pants are starting to thank me a little for that. But it’s fun to make sweets on occasion like Valentine’s Day, so I couldn’t help making this fruit pizza.
Valentine’s Day is a time for romance and to spread a little love. This year we are having a family style Valentine’s Day with the kids. Mr. Mother Thyme and I were never the ones to go out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. I prefer staying in and making dinner. Now that the kids are a little older, I want to get them involved in the Valentine’s Day festivities. The menu will include heart shaped pizza the kids will enjoy, followed by this fruit pizza for dessert.
I love this fruit pizza. This is great anytime of year. It’s a fun dessert to dress with any fruit you prefer. I make this often as it is a quick dessert that makes a lovely presentation and is always a hit. I thought I would finally feature it since I thought it was a cute dessert to make for Valentine’s Day.
I merely took my concept of the my popular Lofthouse Sugar Cookies to make this recipe. If you are fan of those, which I know many of you are, you will love this oversized cookie topped with a cream cheese frosting and berries. If I am taking this to a party, I like to use a aluminum foil pizza pan which you can get at many grocery stores. It is convenient and you don’t need to worry about getting the pan back.Print
