Ingredients

  • 1 (18-ounce) package refrigerated cookie dough
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (can also use almond, orange, or lemon instead)
  • Fruit suggestions: Fresh blueberries, banana slices, mandarin orange sections, seedless grapes, strawberry halves, kiwifruit
  • 1/2 cup orange, peach, or apricot preserves
  • 1 Tablespoon water

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut cookie dough in slices and line an ungreased pizza pan (14 inch), overlapping them.

Bake 12 minutes or until light brown; remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract; spread over crust.

Arrange fruit over cream cheese layer (you can dip the bananas in lemon juice to keep them from turning dark.).

In a small saucepan over very low heat, make a glaze by heating preserves and water.

Brush glaze over fruit, making sure to cover the fruit that will turn dark.

Enjoy!
