Fruit Pizza (Individual Size)

First of all, is this little one not adorable?! She is holding the fruit pizza she made :).

Anyways, I was craving a fruit pizza and decided to make them in individual sizes. Everyone can make their own and top it with their favorite fruits. This recipe is great for kids.

These cookies were absolutely delicious. And because they have fruit on them, that makes them sort of healthy. Right?

The cookies are the perfect texture. The filling is sweet. And the fruit makes it all come together perfectly. I am drooling just thinking about them!

1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon vanilla
