Berry Pizza

Serves: 10

Ingredients

8-ounces sugar cookie dough (we love this recipe from Food Network Kitchens)

1 cup whipped cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sliced strawberries
¾ cup blueberries
Fresh mint, chopped (optional)
Equipment: 9-inch springform pan

Directions

Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Press cookie dough into the bottom of springform pan, making sure dough is in an even layer. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes until edges are golden brown; set aside to cool completely.

Place cream cheese, honey and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment; mix on medium speed until smooth.

Remove outer ring from springform pan. Spread cookie crust with cream cheese mixture and top with fresh berries. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired. Cut into thin slices and serve.

Fruit pizza can be stored in the refrigerator after it has been decorated. Take out of the refrigerator about 10 minutes before serving.
