Fruit Pizza

Mmmmm! This was so good. I have never made fruit pizza so I had no expectations. This is a great recipe that my friend Mary Jane gave me.


Crust: (can use sugar cookie dough)
     1/2 C butter
     1/2 C shortening
     1 C sugar
     2 eggs
     1/4 tsp. salt
     1 tsp. baking soda
     2-3/4 C flour
     2 tsp. cream of tartar

Cream together butter, shortening, sugar, and eggs. Add other ingredients and mix. Spread on a cookie sheet with sides and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool
The KEY: Do not overbake

Filling:
     1 C cool whip
     2/3 C powdered sugar
     1 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese
     1 tsp. lemon juice

Blend filling ingredients together and spread onto crust. Top with a variety of fresh cut up fruit. If using bananas soak them in pineapple or orange juice to stop them from browning. Keep refrigerated.

Serve and enjoy!
Did you get your 60 minutes of exercise in today? I did! Yay!
