This is a firehouse special. The guys (and girls!) pretty much make a dessert every time they make their dinner. It’s their house so they live and eat like at home. They always seem to have ice cream or cookies. But they will make brownies or cake when time allows it. Here is one of those desserts that Matt likes to make when he is at the firehouse, however not cheap due to the fruit ingredients. This time he made it for us at home: we must have been good to deserve it! It is based on a recipe from his friend Eric (also a firefighter). I call him Ken (as in Ken and Barbie)!
Sugar cookie dough (in the tube)
8-ounce cream cheese (at room temperature)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup whipped topping thawed (cool whip).(optional) I like it, Matt does not. Taste as you go.
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon key lime juice
Fruits: bananas, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries…whatever you like (they are the toppings)
Preheat your oven to 350F
Spread your cookie dough on a pizza stone. You may have to flour your hands, it’s a sticky situation! Make it into a circle/pizza. Cook according to the package. (10-15 minutes at 350F should do it)
Let this cool completely.
Cookie Pizza (before toppings):
Mix your cream cheese, powdered sugar, thawed whipped topping, vanilla and key lime juice. Spread on your cookie/pizza. Top with chopped fruits.
I know this is extremely simple, but the kids absolutely love it and it makes them eat more fruits…along with more sugar but the intention is good, right? :)
