Lately I’ve felt the need to do more with my Jaden to both spend more time with him and keep him busy through the day. Since Baby Zeke was born, we’ve been pretty consumed with everything baby. If I let Jaden, he would stay on electronics or watch tv all day long. Sure, he loves to go outside, go swimming, and play with his army men; but he can get sucked into electronics like nobody’s business. This week we’ve made a couple of treats together, including these yummy Fruit Pizza Bites. Made with Puff Pastry Cups, they’re the perfect summery bite-sized treat, and they’re so easy to make.
Fruit Pizza is one of my kids’ favorite desserts, especially Jacob. He usually asks for it every birthday. These bite-sized fruit pizzas are a spin-off of our favorite dessert, made with berries. They’re perfectly kid-friendly to make, and you can whip up a batch in hardly any time at all.
Baking the Puff Pastry Cups according to package directions is your first step. When they come out of the oven, use the tip of a wooden spoon to smash down the middle of each cup. Once they’ve cooled, add a tiny dollop of the cream cheese mixture. Then top with a berry… …or in true Jaden fashion, a pyramid of berries. Yum! That’s all there is to it. They’re so fun to make and eat.
Below you’ll find the printable recipe. Enjoy!
