Puzzle Cookie

Yields9 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time30 mins

 2 cups flour
 ½ tsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp salt
 ½ cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
 1 cup sugar
 1 large egg
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 8 oz package cream cheese
 2 cups fruit cut into bite-size pieces

Preheat your oven to 350˚F.


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.


In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar into a light, fluffy mixture. Then beat in the egg and vanilla. With the mixer on low, slowly add your flour mixture until smooth.


Line a baking tray with parchment or waxed paper. Press the dough into a circle or square about ¼-inch thick. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.


While the cookie is hot, use a paring knife or pizza cutter to slice it into shapes. It doesn’t matter what shapes you pick — they will all fit together!


Let the cookie cool. Then frost each puzzle piece with a thin layer of cream cheese and decorate with fruit.
