nutella & cream cheese fruit pizzas

I had a few cups of nutella buttercream frosting leftover in my fridge from last weekend and just couldn't bear the thought of it going to waste.  I wanted to do something fun with it... besides eating it by the spoonful of course!

I started dreaming about fruit pizza, one of my favorite treats...  a buttery, sugar cookie crust topped with a yummy cream cheese frosting and fresh berries... and thought it would be a perfect base for the nutella frosting!

I couldn't decide which kind I was hungrier for, so I made both.  One with a more traditional cream cheese frosting, topped with strawberries and blueberries...

And the other covered in my nutella frosting and a beautiful layer of strawberries!

These are such a fun, cute way to get your fill of frosting and fruit...  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Cream Cheese & Nutella Buttercream Fruit Pizza Recipes

1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
nutella buttercream frosting
powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Whisk together the flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt.

In a large mixer bowl beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth and well mixed.

Mix in the flour mixture until combined.  Press the dough into 2 round circles on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Bake for 12-18 minutes, until lightly golden brown around the edges.  Let cool completely.  (The cookies will spread, so if you don't have room on one pan - or want to be extra sure they don't touch - you can bake them on two separate pans!)

In medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth and creamy.  Spread on the cooled crust of one of the crusts.

Spread nutella frosting on the other crust.  (Or, obviously you can make both the same, or one big cookie-pizza of one kind!).

Cover nicely with berries and top with powdered sugar just before serving!
