Fruit Pizza

I posted this recipe last July - but I'm posting it again b/c it's just that good - the perfect summer dessert!
Fruit Pizza
18 oz package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
8 oz package cream cheese
8 oz frozen Cool Whip, thawed
2 c sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups blueberries
½ c sugar
1 pinch salt
1 T cornstarch
½ c orange juice
2 T lemon juice
¼ c water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice cookie dough and arrange on a greased pizza pan, overlapping edges. Press dough flat into pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool.

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.

For the 4th, I use strawberries and blueberries – but any fruit is good on this! I do alternating ‘rings’ of strawberries and blueberries starting on the outside rim. Spoon sauce over the top. To make sauce, 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 about 2 hours, then cut into wedges and serve.
