This weekend we had picnics on Saturday, Sunday and Monday… and yesterday was the picnic for my classes! What did I plan it the day after a full 3 day weekend? Each marking period I have a competition between my three classes, and one section has won every single marking period this year! Their final prize? They wanted me to make them some of my fruit pizza. I’m not sure how the word of mouth reached my students, but I willingly agreed. So yesterday, they gobbled down this delicious Strawberry Pizza. I used my trusted fruit pizza recipe, appropriate since I was harassed this weekend for not bringing this dessert to our family & friends’ picnics.
What is your go to summer dessert recipe?
It’s been a while since my last post. Sometimes life gets very busy and hectic. Hubster and I haven’t been home together in a week, and the week before that were extremely busy. Over the next few days I’ll share what’s been going on the past few weeks.
Last weekend was the Laurel Festival Parade and Hubster’s Aunt always had a cookout, since her house is along the parade route. I brought another fruit pizza, per Pumpkin’s (and my nephews’) request. Topped with blackberries, blueberries and red raspberries (unfortunately store-bought and not handpicked). As always, everyone loves this dessert. I doubled up the crust again. Hubster wants me to make this again for the Fourth of July, although I prefer to make new things and not make the same thing time after time.

Happy Memorial Day! This post goes out to Uncle Tony who paid the ultimate price for our country.
Yesterday, I made fruit pizza for our family get together at Uncle Tony’s memorial pavilion. Hubster’s aunt pointed out that I am always designated to bring the dessert. Hmm. Either they don’t like my food, or they really like my desserts. I’m going with the latter of the two. As his aunt told her friends, “She makes those things in cookbooks that you look at and think ‘Wow, who would ever make that?’ She would, that’s who.” Before we were even there an hour, three people already asked for the recipe, one even wrote it down. Maybe they were just being nice, but I didn’t mind the flattery. So here it is…
Fruit pizza is a yummy dessert that your kids can help make.
Use your favorite sugar cookie recipe or a package of ready to use sugar cookie dough. Spread out on a large round or rectangle baking tray and bake until set. Cool before adding frosting.
1 – 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, 3/4 c. sugar, zest of 2 lemons, 2 tsp. almond extract
Soften cream cheese, mix ingredients until smooth. Spread on cooled sugar cookie.
Today I chose strawberries and blackberries. Choose any combination of you favorite fruits, Strawberries, kiwis, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, chocolate syrup or melted chocolate.
Layer fruit on the frosting. Drizzle with chocolate syrup or melted chocolate and garnish with chocolate curls.
*Double up the batch of sugar cookie dough, make it twice as thick and have a “Sicilian” Fruit Pizza.
What are your Memorial Day plans? Who are you honoring?
