Time off

I am taking a little time off from blogging. I put my glue gun and paper away right before Easter and I haven't taken them out since. I know they will both come out sooner or later. I have too much paper to stop making things. I have been cleaning, rearranging, reading and baking. I am also impatiently waiting for warm weather! I have bought new sandals and I want to wear them, now! I am also looking for a pair of jean shorts, that are not too short or too long! That alone could keep me busy for a few weeks. Today looks like a day to stay home and read, it looks like it could rain at any minute. That is why I think I am going to go shopping!

Thanks for visiting!

Sugar Cookie Pizza

We had this for dessert on Easter Sunday. It started making an appearance for the holidays about two years ago. I think it was Thanksgiving 2009 that my daughter made it for the first time. Isn't it wonderful that you can find almost any fruit you want anytime of the year? Fresh kiwi can be found all year round! I thought I would share the recipe with you.

Sugar Cookie Fruit Tart

Spray the bottom of a 9" springform pan with Pam.
Preheat oen to 350

1 Package slice and bake sugar cookie dough
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

8 oz cream cheese (softened)

1/3 cup sugar

assorted fresh fruit

apricot preserves or orange marmalade

Press cookie dough onto a 9 inch spring form pan with outer rim in place

Bake in 350 oven for 22-27 minutes. Let cool completely.

Beat cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until well blended.

You can remove the outer rim of the pan at this time.

Spread cream cheese mixture on top of cooled sugar cookie dough.

Next, arrange fruit on top of cream cheese mixture.

Drizzle warm preserves or marmalade on top. Just a bit, not too much.

The recipe is very easy and I think it would be great for a summer dessert. Don't tell anyone but I also ate it for breakfast. I wonder if it could be made with chocolate chip cookie dough? I think I will google that.
