Fruit Pizza

12" pizza pan
1 pkg. refrigerator sugar cookie dough (or make your favorite sugar cookie dough recipe)
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/3 c. pineapple juice or milk (I like to use the pineapple juice)
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. favorite preserves or jam (Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry etc.)

Several fresh or canned fruits of your choice (strawberries, kiwi's, mandarin oranges, blueberries, etc.)
Spray pizza pan with pam. Cover pizza pan with sugar cookie dough. Bake according to package directions or sugar cookie dough recipe. Cool. Whip softened cream cheese, pineapple juice or milk and powdered sugar together and spread on cookie crust. Arrange fruit in circles according to your taste. Drizzle preserves or jam over the top. Chill. Enjoy!
This is a wonderfully refreshing summer dish. My advice...DON'T let the cookie dough get too thick. A nice thin crust is good.

Hi Erika, my husband & I love seeing what new things you have on your blog; your latest creation looks like a must have!

I don't know if you want any smoothie recipes, but I have been experimenting with frozen fruits (it gets quite hot in AZ as you can imagine, lol). Try these out sometime:
1/3 bag frozen peaches, 1/2 bag frozen raspberries, 2 scoops vanilla ice cream (sometimes I subsititute a sherbert), splash of milk, teaspoon peach extract, 1/2 cup sugar (or other sweetener) and you have a nice tasty summer smoothie! You can vary the fruits, lime w/ cranberries & rasberries or you could have a pina colada frozen pineapple & canned coconut milk, banana.
