mmmm...Fruit Pizza

I decided it's a dessert kind of Wednesday.....and hey, it has fruit in it..............and is pretty easy to make.

First the base layer: 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup icing sugar, 1 cup flour

Pat into the bottom of a tart pan, springform pan...or even a pizza pan..

Prick the top a few times with a fork, bake in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes, remove and cool.

Then make the  2nd layer:  8 ounces of cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla...whip together and spread over base;

Arrange a variety of fruit on the top:

3rd and final layer:  In a saucepan combine 1/3 cup sugar, 2 T cornstarch, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 cup of pineapple juice...cook on medium and stir with a whisk until it starts to thicken and turn clear

Pour quickly over the top of the fruit and refrigerate for at least an hour....yummy...

On a completely different subject...while I was baking I looked out the window and spotted this;

I wonder why I haven't been getting many birds at the feeder lately?


  1. My daughter LOVES little fruit tarts that we get in the French pastry shops here. I bet she would love your recipe! So pretty too!
