fruit pizza... don't knock it 'til you try it...

Fruit pizza, sounds sick right? It has become a family and friend favorite. I have never put a plate down and watch something disappear so quickly! It will forever be a poolside staple. If you like shortbread cookies, cream cheese icing and fresh fruit then we are in business. This recipe is super simply and can be made to be a whole "pizza" or you can make adorable little individual pizzas for all your guests. Love it.

Fruit Pizza Crust
1/2 lb. butter, creamed
1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
1/2 c. cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. plain flour

Cream Cheese Icing
1/2 stick butter, softened
1 c powdered sugar
1 block cream cheese
1 tbsp milk

Fruit topping
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 c strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup kiwi, sliced
1/2 cup bananas, sliced
1/2 cup red raspberries 
{whatever other fruit looks fresh to you!}

Add 1 ingredient at a time to make shortbread cookie. Spread evenly on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 325 to 350 degrees for 15 minutes. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar if you like. For the icing, mix together softened butter, softened cream cheese, milk and powdered sugar{a little bit at a time}. MIx throughly until all ingredients and incorporated. Spread liberally on cooled shortbread crust. Top with fresh fruit and store in fridge for 2 hours. Cut into pretty little slices and serve with mimosas poolside! Yummmm!

Pool Side Love.


Ruggedly Chic Post for {Wit}...

Excuse my month long "blogcation" but I have returned after weddings, company and business galore! I have searched high and low for some new recipes, fashion trends and other fabulosity to share with all the wonderful readers. I pinky promise to never go that long without a post again. Thank you for your patience! Now- for what I am thinking today, I promised a somewhat long time ago that I would post on fashionably funtional rain/outdoor attire. This came about when a few friends and I went to the US vs. Paraguay soccer game here in Nashville. A friend was kind enough to give me his Northface rain jacket since it was drizzling. I was all decked out for work because I had to have my photo taken {blah} however, I was loving the look. Office chic meets rugged, so I thought I would post a few fun looks with for the ladies and gents that want to look ruggedly chic. Thanks for sharing with me Wit!

These guys aren't scared of the wildlife because they look good.
