The Fruit Fest // Fruit ‘n’ Cream Cookie Array

Yield: 20–30 minis

2 sticks (1 cup) margarine
1¼ cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 cups flour
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
⅓ cup orange juice

Vanilla custard
Chocolate cream
Caramel cream
Lemon cream
Halva cream
Sliced fruit, any

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking
sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a mixer, beat margarine and sugar on
high speed until well combined. Add eggs,
one at a time, beating until incorporated.
Beat in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt,
and baking powder. Add to the mixer and
beat again. Finally, add the orange juice
and mix until a dough forms.
Roll out dough into large squares.
Place on the prepared baking sheet
(you will need to work in batches) and bake 8–10 minutes. The centers will appear soft but they will firm as the crusts cool.
Spread with cream of your choice, top
with sliced fruit, and serve.
