Fruit Pizza is one of my favorite desserts!
It’s a wonderful dessert during springtime or any other special time of year, say like the upcoming holidays! :)
On this particular Fruit Pizza I used fresh strawberries, bananas, and kiwi but you can use your favorite fruits.
1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) refrigerated sliceable sugar cookies, sliced
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
½ tsp. vanilla
4 cups assorted cut-up fruit (kiwi, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, drained canned mandarin oranges)
1/2 cup apricot preserves*
HEAT oven to 375°F.
LINE 12-inch pizza pan with foil; spray with cooking spray. Arrange cookie dough slices in single layer in prepared pan; press together to form crust. Bake 14 min.; cool completely. (I used my Pampered Chef baking stone for bars and my cookie crust got a little crisp. If you don’t have a stone you can use any 9×13 baking pan similar to this.)
Using a handmixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer until well blended. Spread over crust.
TOP with the fresh sliced fruit. Mix preserves and water; brush or spoon over fruit. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (*I usually use Smucker’s Sugar Free Apricot Preserves.)
TIP-How to quickly soften cream cheese: Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese on microwaveable plate. Microwave on HIGH for 10 to 15 sec. or until slightly softened.
