Fruit Pizza with Sugar Cookie Crust
Sunday is usually when Brett and I go to the grocery store and get stocked up. So when it was Saturday and I had all this fruit left over from the week I didn’t want it to get pushed to the back of the refrigerator and wasted. What uses any and all fruits? Fruit pizza! I love fruit pizza because you can use whatever is in season, or on hand. I made a thick raspberry sauce to top the cream cheese frosting on the cookie. Enjoy!

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
cream cheese, at room temp
raspberries, fresh or frozen
Cream shortening and sugar together for 2 – 3 min. This will make the crust very light.
Add eggs, milk and vanilla
In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
In small batches add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
Mix together until you can form a large dough ball.
On floured surface, roll out dough ball until about 1/2 inch thick.
Place cookie on sprayed baking sheet
Bake about 10-12 minutes. Top with cream cheese frosting, raspberry sauce and fresh fruit.
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:
Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl
Mix until combined, using a whisk or a electric mixer, refrigerate
Puree all ingredients in a food processor or blender
Transfer to a sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring often so it doesn't burn
Once it boils, remove from heat and refrigerate until its thickened and cooled.
Top cream cheese frosting with a layer of raspberry sauce, or drizzle over the top of the pizza.
