Fruit pizza sugar cookies are the perfect low-carb and gluten-free sweet treat.
Christmas is two days away and the year is almost over. I don’t know about anyone else, but this year felt like it flew right by. Far too quickly I might add. I’m finishing out the year with one more batch of cookies.
These fruit pizza sugar cookies are the best of both worlds. Cookies, frosting and fruit. Fruit makes them even healthier, right? I’m going to say yes! Even better, these cookies are low-carb and gluten-free too.

What you’ll need to make this recipe.
- Almond flour
- baking powder
- Baking soda
- Monk fruit sweetener
- Vanilla extract
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Swerve confectioners
How to make this recipe
1 – Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
2 – Add the almond flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and monk fruit sweetener to a bowl. Mix all the ingredients together.
If you’ve never worked with monk fruit before, it’s the perfect white sugar substitute. It contains zero calories and carbs, and it works as a 1:1 ratio in replacing white sugar.
3 – In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, vanilla extract and almond milk.
4 – Stir the butter mixture into the dry ingredients until everything is well combined. Place the dough in the fridge for about an hour to chill.
5 – Once the dough is chilled, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll dough into about 1” balls. The dough should make about 12 cookies.
Place the balls, evenly spread out, on the cookie sheet. With the bottom of a cup or the palm of your hand, gently smash down the balls into ¼”-thick cookies.
6 – Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. The cookies will be very soft when you take them out of the oven. Leave them on the cookie sheet to completely cool, which is about 30 minutes.
7 – While the cookies are cooling, add the softened butter, confectioners’ sugar and almond milk to a bowl to make the frosting.
8 – Mix all the ingredients together well until a smooth frosting forms. Then, chop up the raspberries and kiwis and set aside. Once the cookies are cool, spread about 1 tablespoon of frosting on to each cookie and top with fruit.
How do I store my homemade cookies?
Fruit pizza cookies will last for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Unfrosted or topped with fruit, can be stored at room temperature for put to 4 days. Unbaked cookie dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
