The voting closed yesterday at 5pm with Sunshine Crawford's Fruit Pizza winning the Best Summer Dessert contest. Congratulations, Sunshine! Thanks to all who voted for Sunshine, and our four other delicious finalists. We had over 2,300 votes! You people sure are hungry for your summer desserts.


Easy Fruit Pizza

1 package Sugar Cookie Mix

8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

Enough bright, colorful fruit to cover your pizza. You can use fresh or frozen. Just thaw frozen fruit before you place on pizza.

Crust: Preheat oven to 350. Slightly grease the bottom of a pizza pan. Prepare sugar cookie mix as directed and spread evenly on the bottom of pizza pan. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until slightly brown around outside of crust. Cool completely.

Cream Cheese Layer: Beat cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar & vanilla until smooth & creamy. Spread on cooled cookie crust.

Fruit: Wash, dry & cut fruit as necessary. Arrange on top of cream cheese layer in a circle pattern, starting from the outside and going in.
