Love Fruit Treats

I got the ideas for these by looking at fruit pizza recipes. They turned out really yummy and pretty but you need to eat them right away or the cookie will get soggy.


6 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. salt

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix dry ingredients and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together. Chill for 1 to 2 hours Roll to desired thickness and cut into hearts. Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges.

Cream Topping

8 oz. cream cheese
7 oz. marshmallow cream

Mix together with an electric mixer and chill until you are ready to spread on the cookies. This is also what I use as a fruit dip. It is great for strawberries.

Fruit Topping

Can of mandarin oranges

Chop up fruit and spoon over cream topping. Serve immediately and enjoy!
