Berry Pizzookie

Here is a sweet treat that is easy for kids to help make! You can choose to make everything from scratch or just buy a few items at the store to make this fun pizza-cookie.

Sugar Cookie Dough (or buy from the store) recipe from Our Best Bites.
1 cup real butter - room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 C flour, lightly spooned into measuring cups and leveled
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy- about 2 minutes. Add in egg and extract and mix to incorporate.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.  A very important note: It’s important to correctly measure your flour or you will end up with a dry, crumbly dough. Never, ever use your measuring cup to scoop up the flour.  Use a regular sized spoon and spoon the flour into the cup and then level it off with a knife.

Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until completely combined.

Chill dough if fridge for at least one hour.

Cream Cheese Frosting (or buy from the store) recipe also from Our Best Bites.
1 8-oz. package cream cheese - room temperature
1/4 cup salted butter - room temperature
1 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whip together the cream cheese, butter, and extract until light and fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar and whip until smooth and fully incorporated.  Refrigerate any leftovers

Assembling your pizzookie:
Roll out half your cookie dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Place on large cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees 8-12 minutes or until edge is golden and center is baked through.

Allow to cool completely before spreading the cream cheese frosting over the giant cookie. Decorate with your favorite Columbia Farms berries.

Be sure to cut small pieces because this pizzookie is very sweet!
