Back again today. I really thought the kids would love this one, but they weren't nearly as excited as I wanted them to be. Well, I guess my constant helper, Taylor was in on it, but Scott wouldn't even help at all and Parker did two of these cookies just to be a good sport. The annoying thing is that none of them want to eat these. I love fruit pizza and that is pretty much what these are with a sugar cookie base, a cream cheese topping and fresh fruit. As much as I like them, I didn't and haven't had one. I think I saw the idea for these also from Mandy's blog, Gourmet Mom-on-the-Go, although I've made them before.
I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe for these. Then whipped up 4 oz. of cream cheese and about 3 1/2 oz. marshmallow creme. Like I said, Taylor had the most fun with these. Try to guess which ones he made. ;)
I thought they turned out really cute/pretty and were fun to make.
Maybe they'd be more fun for a girl's birthday party or sleep over. Boring boys! jk
Stinkin' cute photo intermission:
Would you look at that face?!
The other day while outside, Sam decided he's big enough to get on Taylor's bike and he thinks he can ride it.
He decided he was cold, so we got a jacket.
Okay, let's have some pizza. I got the idea for this fun pizza once again, Mandy's blog, Gourmet Mom-on-the-Go and as soon as I saw it, I thought the boys would love it. We make homemade pizza a lot. The kids usually each get a small piece of dough (I've been making this whole wheat pizza dough since I found it on Joe's blog, Culinary in the Country. It's a great, simple recipe.), anyway, they usually make a small pizza of their own and get to put whatever toppings on that they want, a tradition we did for year's at my house growing up. Who doesn't like pizza!?
Mandy made her snake pizza with cut bagels, but I just did it this way.
Look out, SNAKE! (Really, how cute is he?)
