Patriotic Fruit Pizza

Don’t be fooled by my artistic ability.  I was fooled momentarily when I finished
this, but then I remembered how easy it was. You can do it, too. I promise.
We had my husband’s family over for a Memorial Day BBQ, and
this dessert was my token of appreciation to all that have served our
country.  It was also a mini token of
appreciation to myself, I suppose, because I LOVE FRUIT PIZZA.
Historically I have always made my own sugar cookie crust,
but this year I have turned over a new leaf: I like easy.  I bought the sugar cookie dough (gasp!!). And
you know what? I’m going to do it again.
Recipe
·
2 Pillsbury sugar cookie dough packages (the
roll size)
·
1.5 packages light cream cheese (the type that
comes in the box)
·
2 cups powdered sugar
·
1 tablespoon vanilla
·
4 tablespoons butter
·
Blueberries and raspberries or strawberries for
topping
Line a 9×13 inch baking dish with parchment paper.  Unwrap the sugar cookie dough, and work with
your hands for a little bit to soften it up.
Press it into the pan, using a rolling pin to flatten it out.  Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, until golden
brown.  Let cool.
Using a hand mixer, mix the cream cheese, butter, powdered
sugar, and vanilla in a bowl.  Remove the cooled
sugar cookie bar from the dish, and use a serrated knife to cut off the edges
into a nice, even flag. Frost with cream cheese frosting, then use the berries
to decorate.
I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend and are
recovering from your food hangover!
