Looking for a dessert to bring to your summer barbecue or family picnics? Look no further. I have a delicious and easy fruit pizza recipe that can be made a day ahead of time so that you are not worried about making the dessert on the morning of your event.
Macy’s is celebrating Strawberry Shortcake Day in Herald Square, New York on Tuesday, June 14th at 6:00 pm and this is my take on an American Icon: the one and only Strawberry Shortcake!
For my spin, I use refrigerated sugar cookie dough- this really could not be any simpler for you to make and take. You can feel good eating this dessert because of all the fruits that are on top. Perfect for the Fourth of July!
- 1 roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 1 pkg 8 oz cream cheese
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 pint raspberry
- 1 pint blackberry
- 1/2 pint blueberry
- 1 pint strawberry sliced
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Line baking tray with parchment paper.
- Roll sugar cookie dough to 1/4 inch thick.
- Bake approx 12 minutes.
- Cool completely.
- In an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.
- Spread on prepared cookie crust.
- Top with fruit.
- May be made a day ahead of time.
