Mmmm! I just love fruit pizza. Even though I'm a chocolate-lover, I always dig a slice of this yummy dessert, as I was reminded when my mom served this up a few weeks ago. Hope you love it too!
1 tube refrigerator sugar cookie dough
8 0z. cream cheese
1 small container Cool Whip
Fruit: strawberries, blueberries, peaches, bananas, blackberries, mandarin oranges or whatever you choose
Make orange sauce first (see below), so it has time to cool before you need it! Slice cookie dough in 1/8 inch slices and arrange on lightly greased pan (pizza pan or jelly roll, or cookie sheet). Press together to seal. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees. Let cool.
Mix Cool Whip and cream cheese together and spread evenly over crust. Arrange fruit in any pattern you choose-- usually starting at the outer edge. Spoon Orange Sauce over pizza. Cut and serve.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
dash of salt
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Combine sugar, salt and cornstarch in pan. Add liquid gradually. Cook over med. heat, stirring constantly until thick. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Cool.
This makes such a pretty dessert for any summer picnic or potluck. And you could easily lighten things up by using lite cream cheese and Cool Whip. Enjoy!
