Fourth Of July – Recipe Share

Hey guys! As I mentioned yesterday, I’ll be sharing one recipe a day until the 4th. Here is another simple, brilliant idea from Christy. Anytime I go to a party, I always rack my brain trying to think of what I could bring that will be the most popular dish, and this would definitely be a winner. Of course, the fruit can be arranged to your liking, but this is how Christy did it.

Fruit Pizza
by Allrecipes

1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (7 ounce) container marshmallow creme fluff

Your favorite fruit to top it: I like using strawberries, blueberries, and kiwis.

1/4 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon orange zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Press dough flat into pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool.

In a large bowl, soften cream cheese, beat until fluffy, then fold in marshmallow creme. Spread over cooled crust. You can chill for a while at this point, or continue by arranging the fruit.

Begin with sliced strawberries. Arrange in a circle around the outside edge. Continue with fruit of your choice, working towards the middle. Then make the sauce to spoon over fruit.

In a saucepan, combine sugar, salt, corn starch, orange juice, lemon juice and water. Cook and stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, until thickened. Remove from heat, and add grated orange rind. Allow to cool, but not set up. Spoon over fruit. Chill for two hours, then cut into wedges and serve.
