Today, we want to share a deliciously sweet dessert recipe with you.
Rich in antioxidants, this fruit laden, twist on pizza recipe, is a real winner that never fails to garner oohs and ahs followed by “who made this?” from those lucky enough to get a slice before it disappears. It is always the talk when my wife makes one for some friendly get-together. They are delicious and fun to make and decorate. If you have never had one, you are in for a treat!
1-20 oz. package refrigerator sliceable sugar cookies
1-8 oz. package of Philadelphia cream cheese-softened –You can use reduced fat but…
1/3 cup sugar
Assorted fruit – My wife uses sliced strawberries, bananas, kiwi, grapes and blueberries.
There is also listed some more fruit ideas at the bottom of the page.
½ cup of either orange marmalade, peach or apricot preserves (any one is good)
2 Tablespoons cold water
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Slice the cookie dough into 1/8-inch slices. Arrange slices slightly overlapping each other on a foil-lined 14-inch cookie pan. Press the cookies lightly to form the crust. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool, then carefully invert (turn it over) it onto a large plate. Carefully remove the foil then turn the dough back right side up [we use two plates for this]. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with a mixer until well blended. Spread mixture over cooled cookie crust. Arrange the fruit over the cream cheese layer in a circular pattern. Mix the preserves and water and drizzle or spoon it over the fruit [you can also brush it on…it’s a glaze]. Refrigerate and cut into wedges.
That’s it! This is a favorite with our family and a big hit with everyone who tastes it.
Have fun getting creative with your design. Enjoy!
