Birthday Pizza Cookies

I made this pizza cookies for my son's birthday.  We invited a few of his friends for a sleep over party, we had pizza and pasta followed by these cookies.  The boys came to our house with big bags, not full of clothes but full of water guns and toy guns that they had so much fun playing that they don't need much of a sleep.  

This cookies is inspired by the Betty Crocker Cookie Book.  If you don't want to bake, you can use store bought sweet cookies then ice the cookies with frosting and decorate with some chocolate and lollies for small pizza.  It will be a crowd pleaser at any kids party!

Birthday Pizza Cookies

1/3 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, soften
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

For the frosting:
100g dark chocolate
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
4 tablespoons or more milk

For decoration:
mini marshmallow
white chocolate, melted

  1. Preheat oven at 180c.  Beat sugar, butter, vanilla together until creamy.  Add egg and stir in flour and baking powder.  Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.
  2. Roll dough to the base of the pizza pan or shape dough into small round shape for small pizza.  Bake about 30 minutes or until the cookies is golden brown.  Cool cookies at wire rack.
  3. For the frosting: melt chocolate and butter in a small saucepan under low heat.  Add in sugar and enough milk to make a smooth paste.
  4. Use a knife to spread frosting to cool cookies.  Then top with marshmallow and smarties.  Drizzle cookies with melted white chocolate.  Keep cookies in tin to retain freshness.
