Cookie Dough Heart

May 1, 2019

You Need

  • Packaged sugar cookie dough
  • 8 ounces strawberry flavored cream cheese spread
  • Rolling pin
  • 8 cups assorted fresh fruit, washed and sliced
  • Baking stone or cookie sheet

Directions

  1. Using a rolling pin, roll the cookie dough into a thin sheet on your baking stone or cookie sheet, about ¼-½ in. We used a large heart cookie cutter to shape the heart.  You can also just shape it into a heart.
  2. Bake according to the directions on the package.
  3. Spread the cream cheese in a thin layer over the surface of the cookie.
  4. Layer the fresh fruit over the frosting in whatever pattern you desire.
  5. If desired, cover the fruit with a light coat of ¼ cup apricot jelly mixed with 1 Tbsp water using a pastry brush. Combine the jelly and water, and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until the jelly is smooth. Use a pastry brush to glaze the top of your fruit. This prevents the cut fruit from looking wilted.
