Fruit Pizza Cookies

My sister called me the other day. She was going to make Fruit Pizza that day. It's one of those desserts that I love, but had forgotten about. I just couldn't let the summer pass by without making some for my family too.

I decided this time to make them in individual cookies. I thought it would make portion control easier. No more cutting off a huge piece of the pizza. Sadly, it didn't work for me. I just ate multiple cookies instead. The good news is they are a delicious and refreshing dessert. The bad news is my waistline is not getting any smaller. Am I the only one with no self control?

Want to make some? I used my mom's Best Sugar Cookies Ever recipe.
