This dessert recipe is over 30 years old, but a great one to fix ahead. I got it from my sister-in-law (I have five) while we were living in Bismark, North Dakota. The most I ever made at one time was eight. Our youngest son was a senior in high school and had invited the football team over after a game one night. It was early fall and still warm. The swimming pool was heated and the hot tub was full. What a fun time they had. I don’t think there was any “Fruit Pizza” left over.





Fruit Pizza

Buy one roll of sugar cookie dough.

If you are making many, make your own sugar cookie dough.

Using a round pizza tin, cut dough into slices and lay the slices beside each other pinching the dough together to form one large cookie

Bake: 350 for 12 minutes – then cool

Frosting: Mix with an electric mixer

8 oz. softened cream cheese

1/3 C powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Prepare fresh fruit- what ever is in season; strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi, green and purple grapes, cantaloupe & watermelon. Cut them in half or small pieces & decorate. It is fun to do. If you have the fruit ready, your grandchildren age 8+ would enjoy making a smiley face or large 5-point star.

Don’t forget...brown sugar won’t get hard if an apple slice is placed in the container
