Fruit Pizza with Sugar Cookie Crust

I've never liked fruit pizza because the crust was always dry and crumbly and it usually tasted like a stale cookie with fruit...that is until this recipe! A friend of mine made this for a church activity and everyone raved about it...therefore I knew that I had to have the recipe. I was pleasantly surprised by how moist and chewy the crust was...no crumbs or stale taste...I knew it was a keeper. Fruit Pizza is very versatile because you can top it with whatever fruit that you like and it tastes delicious. I like to use "Junket Danish Dessert" mixed with strawberries and blueberries...but I also like to eat the crust plain, without anything on it...because-it is the best! This recipe is great for those summer cook outs or just for fun.

Fruit Pizza with Sugar Cookie Crust

Cream together:
1 1/2 c. sugar
2/3 c. butter

Add:
2 eggs
2 T. milk
1 t. vanilla
3 1/4 c. flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Mix well. Press cookie dough into a well greased Texas baking sheet (large cookie sheet). Bake at 375 degrees for 10 or less (my oven time varies. Sometimes its 8 minutes, sometimes its 10). Don't over cook! Cool crust, then top with Fruit Pizza Frosting OR your favorite frosting...then top with your favorite fruits: pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, Mandarin oranges, mango, banana's, sliced grapes, raspberries etc...

Fruit Pizza Frosting
1 8 oz. cream cheese (softened
1 8 oz. whipped topping
Powdered sugar (enough to make frosting spreadable)

Mix ingredient and spread on cooled Sugar Cookie Crust.
