Helpful Hints:

This cookie dough crust is a simple sugar cookie recipe. Making this is much less expensive than buying tubes of cookie dough in the dairy section at the grocery store! If you want to make individual fruit pizzas, divide the dough into 12 balls and pat out into circles. Once they are baked, the kids can put whatever fruit they like on top.

Safety Tip:

Young children may need help using an electric mixer. If they are not tall enough to reach the countertop, be sure kids stand on a stable stool with supervision - avoid teetering on a chair or a bar stool. And remember, turn the mixer off before using a rubber scraper to clean the sides of the bowl.
