Raspberry Kiwi Fruit Cookie

Pretty, easy, delicious, dessert…….that’s Raspberry Kiwi Fruit Cookie.

Raspberry Kiwi Fruit Cookie

Every year my brother has a cookout, and every year I try to make something really good. The cookout is a mixture of family and friends. It’s a once a year, “hey how have you been” ,”we should get together more often”, kinda deal.

Plus it’s all about food….my favorite subject. My brothers friends deep fry a turkey, there are ribs, and brisket, and the list goes on.
Everyone brings a dish to pass and a good time is had by all.

Raspberry Kiwi Fruit Cookie

I try to make two things every year. One savory and one sweet. The Pea Salad recipe form last week was my savory and Raspberry Kiwi Cookie was this years sweet.

Since preparation for the party is a bit time consuming, I need my food to be easy. Done!

Raspberry Kiwi Fruit Cookie

This couldn’t be much simpler. Sugar cookie base, I bought a tube…..how easy is that? I had the idea in my head to make a fruit pizza that might resemble a piece of watermelon. Although it didn’t really turn out that way the dessert is awfully pretty……just saying……

In an effort to look like the afore mentioned watermelon, I used 1/3 of the tube of cookie dough, tinted it green, and put it around the edge of a springform pan. I used the remaining cookie dough to fill in the center and baked it.

Once cooled it was toppled with a cream, sweet cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, whipped topping mixture.

Kiwi slices line the outside rim, and the center is filled with ripe luscious red raspberries.

A sprinkle of chocolate chips…..dessert is done!

While I do not think it turned out looking like a slice of watermelon…..it did turn out very pretty, was delicious, and devoured……not a crumb left!

I call that a success!!!

Ok……better late than never…….I have begun to eat with a little more mindfulness. Don’t worry, I will still make a whole bunch of tasty meals, and desserts…….you know the mindless ones, but today the word of the day is FRUIT.

I always think fruit looks really good in the grocery store, so I buy it. I bring it home with every intent of eating it instead of cookies, or ice cream…….well, we know what normally wins…….wha, wha, whaaa……

So, this time I decided if I made a recipe out of it, it would go into me……..it worked. I wanted it to be a fancy, but healthy dessert………instead it was my breakfast. I guess it can be dual duty……..an anytime thing.

It really did turn out pretty. I am all about my food having a picturesque quality……..well, because we take pictures of it, but also because, people eat with their eyes. You can have the tastiest thing in the world and if it looks……for lack of a better world yucky! In my experience, no one will even try it if it doesn’t look good.
