This is such a simple recipe, but maybe you’ve never tried it. I like to do it near Memorial Day or the 4th of July, but it can be done any time however you want to decorate it.


1 tube Sugar Cookie Dough

8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla


(Amounts are for round pizza pan. It should be doubled if using a 12×18 pan)


Crust: Preheat oven to 350.  Slightly grease the bottom of a rectangular pan.  Let dough soften slightly and roll it out to fill the pan. (it might not go all the way to each edge, just make sure it is not too thin)   Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until firm but not brown.  Cool completely.


Cream Cheese Layer: Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar & vanilla until smooth & creamy. Spread on cooled cookie crust.


Fruit: Wash, dry & cut fruit as necessary. Arrange on top of cream cheese layer in a flag pattern.
