Sugar cookie dough to make the “pizza” base…cook as directed for a soft golden color

Cream Cheese filling

2 cubes softened cream cheese

Cream in mixer adding sugar until it satisfies your taste, I like mine fairly sweet and SPLENDA/STEVIA subs work great.

Add a dash of orange juice or other flavoring to give the filling a slight hint of citrusy flavor if wanted.

Cover “pizza” base with a a thin layer of cream cheese

Arrange fruit in a pattern you devise…chill

Then eat…

 

If you want a glaze over the fruit  (I do)…

1 Tbsp corn starch

½ C sugar

½ C OJ

2 Tbsp lemon juice

¼ C water

 

Combine and heat in pan until dissolved, and just starting to boil.

Stir constantly  until it starts thickening

Remove from heat allow to cool a bit then “paint” it over the top of the “pizza”

I pour some then spread with a pastry brush to fill gaps and ensure all fruit and crust are sealed.
