BEST DESSERT EVER!! Huge family hit! A new favorite for the holidays!!!
Here's a tip: We only had 1 package of cream cheese, so we used 1/2 a can of Reddi Whip instead and it was awesome!! Made it very creamy but not too thick!!
I was so glad to find this recipe; it was perfect for our 4th of July picnic! I got some really great local fresh grown strawberries, blue berries, and I also used some fresh raspberries at a local farmers stand along one of our back roads in Lancaster, PA. I liked that this was a completely made from scratch recipe, instead of using ‘boxed’ sugar cookies. My only change was that I used 1 cup of unsalted butter instead of ½ cup shortening and ½ cup butter. It turned out perfect, and it looks so impressive, but was really quite easy!
The sugar cookie crust was delicious and easy. I was surprised how well tossing the banana slices in lemon juice kept them. We still have some fruit pizza left in the fridge 3 days later and the bananas STILL haven't turned!!! It was a big hit at our 4th of July BBQ. I will definitely be keeping this recipe :)
This was a huge hit after our church's patriotic music program! I added the grated peel of one lemon to the cookie dough, and used 1 C. butter in place of the shortening and margarine, as another reviewer suggested. I didn't arrange the blueberries in rows, just outlined the rectangle and filled it in however they fell. Beautiful to look at and scrumptious to eat! I plan on making it again for another 4th of July event.
My 5 yr old and 3 yr old loved helping me make this patriotic fruit pizza. It turned out great, LOVE that the cookie is from scratch, not a boxed mix!
