Fruit Pizza : Carnival of the Recipes

This recipe I make all the time for home and the office. Eveyone loves it.
I hope you will too! It is easy and looks like you spent hours working in the kitchen!
A cookie dough crust, cream cheese filling, and fruit topping. Tip: For a quick crust, use one package of ready made sugar cookie dough rolled out to fit a pizza pan. Use an assortment of fresh fruit such as bananas, peaches, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, and strawberries. Original recipe yield: 1 fruit pizza.

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until smooth. Mix in egg. combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Press dough into an ungreased pizza pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until light. Spread on cooled crust.
Arrange desired fruit on top of filling, and chill.

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!

This is pretty much the same as one of my favorite recipes, always impresses when I bring one into the office.

I usually use a little orange juice instead of vanilla mixed into the cream cheese. I usually glaze it with a packaged glaze, or with a mixture of OJ and marmalade that has been nuked until it is brushable.

I always enjoy baking the giant cookie.
