The Perfect Summer Treat...


...or, at least, that's what my kids pronounced this delicious delight! I know many of you make fruit pizza and share our affinity for it! It DOES seem just perfect for a hot Summer day! And couldn't be easier!
I used slice and bake sugar cookie dough...laid it on a pizza pan, overlapping the edges. Flattened it down by hand and baked according to the directions on the package...just till it was a nice, pale golden brown.
Then I mixed up a yummy sauce of creme cheese, 1/4 cup of  confectioner's sugar and a container of Cool Whip. Blend it all together and spread it onto the cookie crust. (It also makes a great dip for strawberries and other fruits of the season!)

Now the fun begins! Use any fruit you have on hand or just plain enjoy! For this one we used kiwi fruit, strawberries, nectarines, blueberries & raspberries. To finish I added just a drizzle of dark chocolate!

Yep, just perfect I would say!

It's a hot one today here in Ohio. I hope you are staying cool and happy in your part of the world...

It looks far too gorgeous to eat, but....I guess it was to be eaten, right?

Glad to have met you yesterday. And thanks for the popcorn treat. Who ever thought of mixing chocolate, peanut butter and popcorn together was genius.

Pam said...

I was going to email you, but didn't see your email address. Have you ever been to Kim's blog - http://kenward.blogspot.com/ . She has a really cute blog and she adopted her daughter from China a few years ago. Plus she's super sweet.
