Thursday's Tip {Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizzas}

 How delicious do these babies look?!?!

umm really delicious.. they taste just as amazing i promise!

Ty's aunts sister made these for his cousins wedding reception and i swear i ate 5.. no lie.
I asked her for the recipe and she so kindly gave it to me...


She makes her own sugar cookies, but you can just use already made sugar cookie dough.


1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough

Frosting:
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

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


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

Begin with strawberries, sliced in half. Arrange in a circle around the outside edge. Continue with fruit of your choice, working towards the middle. If bananas are used, dip them in lemon juice so they don't darken. Then make a 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.


(sorry I had two recipes to share today, and you will have to look back later this evening for the Halloween Episode of Thursday's Tip)
