Pizza Cookie!!

Today Claudia and I (with the help of her friend Maddy) made a pizza cookie, and it was pretty yum! Although there was a bit too much frosting on it for my liking. It was so easy to make and the kids can pretty much do it on their own! I have put the recipe below in case you are looking for something fun to make with the kids!
for the cookie:
115g (4oz) unsalted butter
200g (7oz) caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
225g (8oz) plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
for the topping:
115g (4oz) unsalted butter
250g (9oz) icing sugar
115g (4.5oz) cream cheese
150g (5oz) sweets
2 tbsp sugar strands or sprinkles
Preheat oven to 175degC (350degF) and line a 30cm (12") pizza tray or baking sheet with baking paper.
Beat the butter and sugar together. Then add the egg and vanilla essence. Sift the flour and bicarb soda and stir into the mixture. Spread the dough onto the pizza tray. Bake for 18 to 20mins until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before transferring to a wire rack.
Beat the butter and icing sugar together and then beat in the cream cheese. Spread over the cooled cookie and decorate with sweets and sugar strands.
