Fruit Pizza Dessert
Posted By Heather On August 1, 2010 @ 5:06 pm In Desserts,Kid-friendly,Recipes,Special Occasion | 18 Comments
Every year, we get together with family to celebrate all the summer family birthdays. Most years, each person has already had a birthday cake to celebrate on their special day. So, when we finally all get together with aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents, we often do something other than birthday cake for the dessert. Last year, we had chocolate fondue for dessert. This year, I decided to make a dessert pizza with fresh fruit.
It was a busy weekend for us, and I actually decided last minute what I was making, so I took a short cut and used Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix  for the crust. (FYI: The mix can be made egg-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free.) I combined two mixes to make a 16″ pizza crust. Then, I made a simple cream cheese spread to cover the huge sugar cookie crust, and topped it with slices of fresh fruit. It’s a simple and easy dessert, but very satisfying and pretty. You can use whatever fruit you have available. Make a design with the fruit, like I did, or simply pile it all on.
Sugar Cookie Dough (2 Cherrybrook Kitchen mixes, 1 Cup margarine or Earth Balance dairy-free substitute , 1/2 Cup almond milk, 5 tsp vanilla)
8 oz. cream cheese [I use Tofutti’s dairy-free Cream Cheese  to make this dairy-free.]
1/2 Cup powdered sugar, sifted
Variety of fruit, sliced (I used 3 kiwis, a pint of strawberries and a handful of blueberries.)
