tasty tuesday ~ mini fruit pizzas.

Today's recipe is all about "kids in the kitchen." Taylor, my 10 year old made these 100% by herself. She got a little cook-book in her stocking that I am guessing Santa got in the $1 section as a stocking stuffer, and she really likes trying things in it.

No, these are not homemade sugar cookies, which are obviously the better choice... but like I said, she is 10 and did them all alone. And let me just tell you... these were dang good, store bought cookie-dough and all.

So let go of your pride and give your kids a shot at making mini-fruit pizzas for a fresh treat.
