Recipe type: Easy
Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 16
 
Ingredients
Cookie:
  • 2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 3 oz package of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2½ cups Flour
Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • ½ Stick of Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 8 oz package of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 16 oz Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Topping:
  • Blueberries (for stars)
  • Strawberries or Raspberries (for stripes)
Instructions
Cookie:
  1. Cream together softened cream cheese and butter with a mixer. Once combined, add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg yolks and vanilla. Add flour and mix until just combined. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and grease a rectangular sheet pan. Remove cookie dough from the fridge and using a bit of flour (on your hands) press dough in to the sheet pan evenly. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookie is a light golden brown.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
  1. Cream together softened butter, cream cheese and vanilla. Slowly incorporate powdered sugar until icing is smooth. Once the cookie is completely cool, frost the cookie.
Topping:
  1. Wash fruit and pat dry. Slice strawberries (if using). Arrange fruit on the iced cookie to mimic the American flag, per the image above. Serve immediately, or cover and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat. Once the fruit is placed on the pizza, it is best eaten in the same day. Wait to place the fruit until right before serving if you plan to refrigerate the iced cookie overnight.
