  • 14.6 oz all-purpose flour (about 3 1/4 cups)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 6 oz unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1.5 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 TBSP packed lemon zest
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 TBSP heavy cream
  • 2 tsp lemon extract
For the Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup strawberry jam, room temperature
  • 6 oz powdered sugar (about 1 1/2 cups)
To Assemble:
  • 8 cups assorted fresh fruit, washed and sliced (berries, mangoes, clementines, grapes, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup apple jelly (or other light-colored jelly)
  • 1 TBSP water


  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • In a medium bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda. In a larger bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and lemon zest until light and fluffy. Incorporate the eggs one at a time, followed by the heavy cream and lemon extract. Gradually add the dry ingredients to create a smooth dough. Chill until firm.
    • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into an Easter egg shape, about 1/4 inch thick. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 16-20 minutes until golden. Allow to cool on the sheet before transferring to a serving platter.
  2. Prepare the Frosting:
    • Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Blend in the strawberry jam and powdered sugar until the frosting is creamy and spreadable.
  3. Assemble the Fruit Pizza:
    • Evenly spread the strawberry cream cheese frosting over the cooled cookie crust. Arrange the sliced fruits artistically on top, creating a colorful pattern.
    • Combine the apple jelly with water in a small saucepan and warm over low heat until the jelly melts. Brush this glaze over the fruits to add a beautiful shine and help preserve their freshness.
