My Recipe Box: Fruit Pizza

On Saturday evening we went to a party at a friend's house to celebrate our successful Vacation Bible School. They provided brisket and asked everyone to bring a side dish or a dessert. I have been wanting to try making a dessert pizza so I found a recipe online to make. It turned out fantastic and was a big hit! If you love fruit, cream cheese and sugar cookies, you definitely need to try this!
Fruit Pizza

2 12 oz packages refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 8 oz package strawberry cream cheese, softened
1 8 oz container marshmallow creme
Fruit of your choice (I used strawberries, blueberries, grapes, bananas and kiwi)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup water

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice cookie dough and arrange on greased pizza pan, overlapping edges. Press dough flat into pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Allow to cool.
2. In a large bowl, soften cream cheese then add marshmallow creme. Blend together and then spread over cooled crust.
3. Arrange fruit starting with the outside and working in. Dip bananas and apples (if used) in lemon juice so they won't darken.
4. Make the sauce to spoon over pizza. In a saucepan, combine sugar, salt, cornstarch, orange juice, lemon juice and water. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Spoon over fruit. Chill for 2 hours then cut into wedges and serve.
