Fruit Pizza Cookies are so fun and easy to make and they always make a good impression. Soft, gluten free sugar cookies spiked with a hint of lemon and loaded up with a creamy greek yogurt frosting topped with fresh sliced fruit. A perfect healthy dessert for summer picnics and parties.



For the Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter – unsalted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For the frosting

  • 5 oz whipped cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • the juice of 1 lemon – about 1 tablespoon 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For topping

  • Assorted fresh fruit – like strawberries, blueberries, mandarin oranges and kiwi


  1. Make the cookie dough. In a medium size mixing bowl cream together the maple syrup and butter, then add in the egg, vanilla, lemon juice and mix. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt). Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix and form into a thick dough.
  2. Form and bake the cookies. Roll the dough out onto a floured surface and form it into a ball or disc using your hands. Add some flour to your hands to prevent the dough from sticking. Use a floured rolling pin or your hands to flatten the dough out into a 1/4-inch thick circle. Use a round cookie cutter, biscuit cutter, or round glass to cut out even size circle cookies. Place the cookies onto a line baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes. Remove and let cool.
  3. Make the frosting. Add all frosting ingredients to a medium size mixing bowl and mix until fully combined into a light, fluffy, yummy frosting. It’s so good!
  4. Prep the fruit and assemble the cookies. Cut the fruit into small pieces, spread some of the frosting onto each cookie in an even layer and top with some mixed fruit.
  5. Serve. You can enjoy these cookies right away or store them for later in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


  • Use fresh fruit. Frozen fruit will not work in this recipe since it can make the cookies soggy.
  • Select fruit that is different sizes and colors for a fun variety to decorate your cookies with.
  • Cut the cookie dough into 1/4-inch thick rounds. If you cut them too thick then the cookies may not cook all of the way through and if you cut them too thin they may fall apart.
  • If the cookie dough cracks while you are rolling and cutting out the cookies then just use your hands to smooth the dough over the cracks. This is a very forgiving recipe, which is why I love it!
  • Let the cookies cool before assembling them so the frosting sticks to them better. 5-7 minutes of cooling time should be fine.
  • Store these cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can store them better if you assemble them right before you serve them.
