Did You Know?        

Tcutterhis cookie dough crust is a simple sugar cookie recipe. Making this is much less expensive than buying tubes of cookie dough in the dairy section at the grocery store! If you want to make individual fruit pizzas, divide the dough into 12 balls and pat out into circles. Once they are baked, the kids can put whatever fruit they like on top.
