Ashley Dearmore Recipe

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!
