A friend of mine used to have a sandwich shop-- she made this recipe and kept it frozen until purchased. It is best eaten while only slightly thawed!

Ingredients

1
yellow cake mix
1/4 c
brown sugar
2
eggs
1/4 c
water
1/2 c
walnuts or pecan, chopped
16 oz
cream cheese
1 c
sugar
2 tsp
vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine the first 5 ingredients and mix for about 2 minutes on medium speed. Mixture will be very thick.


While mixing the crust, top a shiny, 16 in. pizza pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil (I prefer the paper.) If you do not have a 16 in. pan, two smaller pizza pans will work.
2
Place batter in the middle of the pan. Spread the mixture to the edge of the pan. This is a bit tricky, you will need to grasp the paper and hold it opposite the direction that you are spreading. Also, I place a rubber no slip pad underneath the pan to hold it in place. Aim to make a consistent thickness throughout the crust, going to withing ½ inch of the edge. Don’t worry if it is not pretty, it will not show in the final product. Consistent thickness is what is important.
3
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Bake in the middle rack of the oven for 10 minutes, and then check for the next 2 minute intervals until light brown. (I call this babysitting your oven) It will take 10 – 14 minutes, depending on your oven.
Remove and allow to cool.
4
While the crust cools, place the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in your clean mixing bowl.
Beat until well combined
5
Now, spread the toppping over the cooled crust.
Next, "decorate" with strawberries, bananas, berries, kiwi, pineapple slices. Make sure all are sliced thinly, or in small chunks.
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Serve slightly thawed.
