Welcome to my Red Couch! So glad you dropped by and so glad the fresh fruit season is finally here. I was craving some blueberries, the first of the season, and came up with making individual cookie tarts. The fruit was fun to cookie craft with and tasted delish!
I made the sugar cookie recipe here, via Sue at Munchkin Munchies; they are my favorite sugar cookie recipe. If you are in a pinch, you could use refrigerated dough; but these are super easy to make; they are a no chill, no fuss sugar cookie recipe. Cut cookies out in the desired size. Frost generously with Cream Cheese Frosting; this really is a good frosting; some recipes don't add the whipping cream and the frosting ends up tasting too cheesy.
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 box of softened cream cheese (8 ounces)
1 half-pint container of whipping cream, whipped into soft peaks
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon almond flavoring -- you could substitute fresh lemon and adjust amount
Mix gently the softened cream cheese with whipping cream, powdered sugar, and almond flavoring. Chill frosting for about 1/2 hour. Then frost each cookie generously and decorate with blueberries and strawberries. I think raspberries would taste good also; they still are a bit dear right now in our area.
Note: The Cream Cheese Frosting recipe makes quite a bit. If you do end up having more frosting than cookies, save it to dip strawberries in.
