Dessert Pizza - Flag Style

After I had my fourth baby last summer a friend was kind enough to bring our family a meal. With that meal included the most amazing dessert. After I took the first bite, before dinner of course, I wanted to hide it all for myself. It was sweet, creamy and fruity.

When I asked my friend for the recipe she told me it was "just dessert pizza." Just dessert pizza?! It's amazing. It's so good and easy I make it all the time.

Somehow my husband nor I grew up with this fine treat. Just in case you've missed out on this deliciousness too I wanted to share the recipe with you!

Dessert Pizza - Flag Style
2 tubes sugar cookie dough
2 packages cream cheese, soft
2/3 cup sugar
Jelly Roll Pan

The Cookie:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Press the cookie dough into a greased jelly roll pan.
 Leave a small space around the edge. The dough will expand.
Bake for 12-15 until golden brown.
Once cooled I cut around the edge of the cookie to make it even.

The Frosting:
 Cream the sugar and cream cheese together. 
Once the cookie is completely cooled spread the cream cheese on the cookie.

The Fruit:
Use the blueberries and strawberries to make your stars and stripes.

For a 9x13 pan half the recipe.
Round pizza pans are fun to use too.
Any type of fruit for this is delicious.
We also like kiwi, bananas, & peaches.

We decorated our pan with some fun patriotic paper!
