Fruit Pizza

I love fruit pizza.  This recipe serves alot, and is fast to throw together.  I use the help of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix.
This is my husband and son's favorite dessert that I make.  They are both fruit lovers.  Any fruit you have on hand will work.  Frozen berries, oranges, bananas, peaches, nectarines,

kiwi, fresh or canned pineapple, fresh berries, mandarin oranges, grapes, etc.  If you want to make ahead, use some jam or canned pie filling to top the bananas to prevent them from browning.

Fruit Pizza

1 pkg Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
juice of 1/2 lemon
zest of 1/2 lemon
3/4 c powdered sugar
assorted fresh, canned, or frozen fruit
Jam or pie filling (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Mix together cookie mix according to package directions.  Press batter onto a greased cookie sheet pan.  Bake for 8-10 minutes it just until slightly golden around edges.  Remove from oven, set aside and let cool completely.  Mix together softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest until whipped and combined.  Spread evenly on cooled cookie crust.  Top pizza with fruit in whatever design you like.  Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers.
