  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • Cream the above 5 ingredients, then add:

  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • Refrigerate overnight.

Method

Step 1

Spread cookie dough flat onto a round, 14" pizza pan covered with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool. Slide onto a large tray off parchment paper. This works really slick!

Step 2

While cookie is baking, mix together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread onto top of cookies.

Step 3

Slice larger pieces of fruit, arrange aesthetically on top of cream cheese. Serve cold.

Step 4

For other times of year, have fun with different fruits. Use kiwis and strawberries for Christmas, kiwis and green grapes for St. Patrick's Day, blueberries and mandarin oranges for a Bronco game....the sky is the limit!
