Bday recipes-- Jenna's treat!

Jenna requested a light summer treat-- nothing too heavy!  I had just the perfect concoction in mind!! This recipe can be executed in a bunch of different ways-- I decided to go the bite size route since we were eating dinner out!  This recipe is extremely simple and one that EVERYONE loves!!  The crust is composed of just a basic sugar cookie!

Sugar Cookie 
1 1/2 c unsalted butter, softened 
1 c sugar 
1 egg 
2 tsp vanilla extract 
4 1/2 c all-purpose flour 
1/2 tsp salt

Cook at 350F. 
In a bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla extract. On low, beat in flour and salt. Divide dough in half; shape each half into a 1/2-inch-thick disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill until firm. On floured surface, roll dough 1/8-inch thick; cut into shapes. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet. Bake until lightly golden around the edges, 10 minutes. just your basic sugar cookie

Allow cookies to cool then add your fixings! :)

Cream Cheese Topping
4 ounces cream cheese
1/3 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Blend together until smooth.  Add this to the top of your cookies and sprinkle with your favorite fruit! AND HAPPY BDAY BIB!!
