Get a baking sheet big enough for a circle. A pizza stone would work great too. . Roll out the dough to shape it. You can freehand it into a wreath shape or roll it into a circle then use a bowl to cut a circle out the middle. That’s my go to when I’m in a rush and just can’t spare the extra brain cells. Just keeping it real here. Use powdered sugar to keep it from sticking.
Cook for 15 – 20 mins or until the edges are brown and the middle isn’t jiggly. Jiggly middles are not good for people or cookies. Let cool completely.
Once cool, put it on the plate or whatever you are serving it on. You can peel off the parchment paper or leave it. That is entirely up to you. Just decide it before you start decorating. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Slather all over top of cookie wreath.
Wash, dry, and slice fruit. You can use whatever you have on hand. Maybe you got a hodgepodge in your Misfit Market box. Use it. Want to make it festive, use some strawberries and kiwis. You get complete creative control over which fruit to use and where to put it. Heck, have the kids take over assembling at this point.Print
