Spiced Fruit

Sugar Cookie Crust

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

Greek Yogurt Frosting

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest


Macerate the Fruit

  • Scrape the ginger root into the sugar and stir with a fork. Halve the plums, cutting each half into ¼-inch slices. Toss all the fruit in the gingered sugar and set aside. Cut the tops off of the strawberries and slice into 1/4-inch slices. Remove the stems from the dried figs and cut them in half. Gently toss the fruit in the gingered sugar. Set aside.

Make the Giant Sugar Cookie

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Use a 12" nonstick pizza pan or mist with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl, whisk the salt, baking powder, and flour for 30 seconds to combine them.
  • Cream butter and sugar for 1 minute on medium speed. Mix in vanilla extract. Add in egg until incorporated into the batter. Stop the machine and scrape down the walls. Pour all of the whisked dry ingredients into the bowl. Mix until it just comes together. Transfer the batter to a nonstick 12” pizza pan, spreading the cookie dough out from the center to the edges. Place a piece of plastic wrap over top and using the bottom of a juice glass or glass jar or your fingers to press and smooth the dough until even.
  • Bake on the center rack until golden brown, about 12-14 minutes. Remove from the oven but leave the cookie on the pan so the residual bottom heat will keep baking the cookie and firm it up. Cool completely.

Make the Greek Yogurt Spread

  • Set a strainer over a bowl to capture the fruit juices as you drain the fruit. Set the fruit aside. Whisk the fruit juice into the Greek yogurt along with the lemon zest.

Decorate the Fruit Pizza

  • Once the cookie is completely cooled, transfer it to your serving platter or large cutting board—however you’re planning to serve it. Spread the yogurt onto the giant cookie and tile the fruit on top. Garnish with tiny mint leaves.Cut into slices and serve (or chill in the refrigerator for 10 minutes before serving to “set” the fruit.
