My father-in-law was visiting recently and I wanted to make something special for him. He’s just like my husband in that he LOVES treats. He also likes to watch what he eats, so I went with this small batch Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza recipe from Sweet & Simple.

Christina, you had me at cream cheese frosting, girl.

No leftovers.

No extra bites and “samples.”
