{individual fruit pizzas}

This post brought to you by NECTRESSE™Sweetener. All opinions are 100% mine.

Fruit pizza has long been one of my favorite treats, but for some reason I don't make it very often.  This week I had a craving, and thought it would be fun to create individual fruit pizzas, using sugar cookies.  They were a hit! They were fast, so simple to put together, and SO yummy!

What I love about them is that you can offer the cookies with the cream cheese on it, along with a presentation of variety of fruits, so everyone can design their pizza exactly the way they like it.  I'm a strawberries girl, so I always end up piling them on.  :) This would be a really fun idea for a party or gathering, too!

I recently received a sample NECTRESSE™Sweetener which is a natural, no-calorie sweetener that's 150 times sweeter than sugar, and can be added to your baking and cooking to add natural, zero calorie per serving sweetness!  It's from the makers of Splenda, and derives its sweetness from the monk fruit.  It's also available at your local grocery store!

My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in his first month of kindergarten, so I'm always looking for ways to help him reduce his sugar intake. I was excited to try Nectresse, and thought the cream cheese frosting would be the perfect recipe to try it in. I was right!  It was a great way to cut down on the sugar, but not miss out on the taste.  My husband and kids couldn't tell the difference, and my son gave it a thumbs-up!

Bake your favorite sugar cookie dough, and let cookies completely cool.  I have my favorite recipes, but when I'm in a hurry, I love the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix.  I get compliments and requests for the recipe every time I take them anywhere, and they literally take minutes to mix up.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1-8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened 
8 packets of Nectresse (or 1/3 c. sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat the cream cheese and Nectresse until creamy and smooth, then add the vanilla and beat well.  Frost the cookies with the cream cheese frosting, and top with your favorite fruits!  Strawberries, raspberries,  blackberries, kiwi, mandarin oranges, fresh peaches, and fresh pineapple are just a few options--whatever you like!  ***If you'd like an even healthier version, just omit the sugar cookies, and use the cream cheese frosting as a fruit dip!
