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.
