Happy Fruit of July

June 27, 2024

Are you in search of a fun and easy recipe for this upcoming Fourth of July? Look no further! Making a fruit of July cookie is not only patriotic, but also delicious! It's as simple as baking a large rectangle sugar cookie, icing it, and then decorating it with fresh fruit. You can use any fruit to decorate it, but during this time of the year, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries make for the perfect red, white, and blue color scheme. My family used to enjoy this every summer, and we are excited for you to give it a try! 


2 Sugar Cookie Dough logs (we use Pillsbury, but you could also make your own dough)  

8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened  

½ C. Powdered Sugar  

2 Tbsp Cool whip  

Assorted chopped fresh fruit  

  • Line a 13x18 cookie sheet with foil with the non-stick side facing out. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. 
  • Press Sugar cookie dough in ½ inch thick layer in pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees until lightly golden around the edges, approximately 12-14 minutes.
  • Allow cookie to cool completely.
  • Using a countertop mixer or hand mixer, blend cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.
  • Fold in cool whip and mix until smooth. 
  • Spread icing over the completely cooled cookie. 
  • Decorate with fresh berries and fruit.
  • Cut and serve!
