Berry-Topped Stars

Our home economists needed just six ingredients to make these sweet treats that start with store-bought cookie dough. They’re sure to be the star at Fourth of July celebrations, but they’re great for any summer occasion.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough, softened
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 24 small fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 4 large kiwifruit, peeled and sliced or 1 cup fresh blueberries

Directions

  • In a small bowl, beat cookie dough and flour until combined. Roll on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 3-in. star-shaped cookie cutter.
  • Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
