Macadamia Cookie Pizza

Got a sweet tooth that you can't seem to get out of? Here's a delightful dish from Shugary Sweets that would not only bring you to the cookie heaven but would also allow you to see pizza in a different light. Introducing the Macadamia Cookie Pizza recipe - a sweet reminder of Hawaii in a pizza form! 

Ingredients:
For the Cookie Crust:
3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup dry roasted macadamia nuts, chopped
For the topping:
8oz PHILADELPHIA White Chocolate Snack Delights
fresh fruit (blueberries, raspberries, pineapple)

Directions: 
  1. For the cookie dough, beat crisco, vanilla and sugar together until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in egg. Add flour, salt and baking powder, beat until combined. Fold in chopped nuts.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. I used a 15inch round pizza pan. Press cookie dough into a 12inch circle (about 1/4-1/2inch thick).
  3. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 18-21 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.
  4. To garnish, spread white chocolate Snack Delights over cooled cookie. Top with your favorite fresh fruit! ENJOY.
