In the spirit of experimentation, I have been trying out various dessert recipes. Trying new things is something I am making a conscious effort to do more of here at i am baker. (So if you have requests, do let me know!)
You may have noticed the change, maybe not. In the last three weeks I have posted considerably more. This is completely unlike me, as I used to post once a week or less. But I love the challenge and the new personal goals that have been established.
There are some really positive changes happening around here and I am truly excited where it’s leading me. I hope you will consider coming along for the ride! It is definitely more fun with you!
I get asked on Facebook and Google+, “How can I get emails when you post?” Here is the easiest way to do that… simply locate this box on the right hand side of my blog and enter your email address.
It is by far the best way to know when I am updating and to be the first to get access to some pretty fun desserts!
Back to dessert pizza. One of the best things about this is the shortbread cookie crumble on top of the pizza. I asked my sweet Parker if he would help out and he was happy to lend a hand.
Ha! I seriously need to stop laughing at my own jokes. That or just keep on laughing.
I think I will choose laughing. It’s helps you lose weight right? And after this pizza that is a good thing.
So this is a layer of cinnamon and sugar pizza, a cream cheese layer, a blueberry pie filling layer, then shortbread crumbles.
Not too shabby eh?
These four pieces look about right. The kids can split the small ones. 😉
I know I have a fork in the picture, but in my defense, I took the picture before actually trying the pizza. Once I actually had a bite, it was immediately apparent that this was a job for the ole hands. No utensils needed!
Blueberry Dessert Pizza
- 1 12 " thin pizza crust pre-made
- 1 can 21 oz. blueberry pie filling
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 3/4 c powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 c butter softened
- 1 pkg 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tbsp. butter melted
- 1 c crushed shortbread cookies
- Heat oven to 350.
- Mix 2 tablespoons of melted butter with cinnamon and brush over the entire pizza crust.
- Bake crust for about 5 minutes or until crust is golden brown, then allow crust to cool.
- In a stand mixer, blend together cream cheese, softened butter and vanilla until light and fluffy.
- Add powdered sugar and brown sugar and mix well.
- Carefully spread cream cheese mixture evenly over pizza crust.
- Add an even layer of blueberry filling.
- Generously sprinkle top of pizza with crushed shortbread cookies. (I use Walkers and used 6 round cookies)
- Serve cool.
- (Contrary to my pictures, no forks needed!)
Did you make this recipe?
Thank you for making my recipe! You took pictures, right? Well go ahead and post them on Instagram! Be sure to mention me @iambaker and use the hashtag #YouAreBaker.
Question about the pizza dough. Can you use canned thin crust pizza dough, and isn’t using pizza dough going to make this a little more ‘chewy’ Typically, a sugar cookie bottom is used in fruit pizzas. Remarks ?
whoops another question on the crust. What pre made do you use ? or do you make a standard pizza that is homemade ? Share recipe if so. Want to make this week.
Sounds good. Can not believe so easy and so good. Will be a fave!
