Basically, this is a giant sugar cookie, with frosting and fruit...well, and chocolate chips of course. My son despises fruit so I knew he wouldn't get any dessert on Thanksgiving if fruits were included. And since I made the desserts, I made sure he was able to indulge also. His slice was one with chocolate chips. This was a huge hit with all the children, and most of the adults also.
So, begin with a sugar cookie recipe. I used the following from my Better Homes & Gardens cook book:
2/3 C Organic Butter, Softened
3/4 C Organic Sugar
1 t Aluminum Free Baking Powder
1/4 t Sea Salt
1 Range Free Egg
1 T Raw Milk or Coconut Milk
1 T Organic Vanilla
2 C Organic Flour
Beat butter until creamy. Add sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat until combined. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla until smooth. Beat in as much flour as you can with the mixer then stir in any remaining flour.
Lightly flour baking stone and turn dough onto stone. Press down with hands to make a circle and press out as much as possible with your hands. Use a rolling pin to get dough out close to the edges.
Bake at 375 for approximately 15 minutes or until cookie is lightly browned. Let cool completely.
1 - 8 oz Organic Cream Cheese, Softened
1/2 C Organic Powdered Sugar
Blend together well and spread on cookie
Top with whatever kinds of fruits you like. I used strawberries, raspberries, oranges, blueberries and chocolate chips.
