Start with a ball of snickerdoodle cookie dough about the size of one large grapefruit (about 1/3 pail of dough or 1 pound). Flatten the dough into a circle on a cookie sheet or round pizza pan. It should be 1/4” to 1/2” thick and 10” – 12” diameter.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Rotate, so cookie bakes evenly. Bake 5 minutes more. Keep rotating and checking until it is slightly browned. Cool. Spread frosting on cookie then decorate with fruit-fresh or canned-whatever looks pretty to you!
Cream Cheese Frosting
1-8oz cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
4-5 cups powdered sugar
Cream first 3 ingredients together. Add sugar and vanilla. Blend well. Add more sugar if you need a stiffer frosting. Beat on high 2-3 minutes or until well blended.
