easy fruit pizza

Happy Friday! I can't believe we're kicking off July already! We have a four-day weekend with Dustin home so us girls are all excited for some fun plans and time relaxing as a family. 

This past week I made one of my favorite desserts ever -- fruit pizza -- and everytime I make it I'm always amazed at how easy it is! This would be a perfect addition to your cookout this weekend and is even better the next day, so delicious and refreshing!

what you'll need
(1) roll refrigerated sugar cookies (16.5 oz)
(1) package cream cheese, softened (8 oz)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 kiwifruit, peeled, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 cup halved or quartered strawberries
1/2 cup apple jelly or apricot preserves (optional)

what you'll do
1 // Heat oven to 350 degrees

2 // Using a rectangular cookie sheet or round pizza pan, spray bottom with cooking spray or line with parchment paper or a baking mat {I always use a silpat baking mat to ensure it doesn't stick}

3 // Roll out sugar cookie dough into pan, either forming it into a large circle or rectangle; press evenly into pan to form the crust

4 // Bake 16-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown and then cool completely, about 30 minutes

5 // In a small bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy

6 // Spread mixture evenly over cooled crust

7 // Arrange fruit as desired over cream cheese

8 // Optional to add jelly or preserves by brushing it lightly over fruit {I don't ever add this but some of my girlfriends always do}

9 // Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour

10 // To serve, cut into wedges or squares; cover and refrigerate any remaining pizza

Hope you have the best weekend and Happy 4th of July!! XO
