Okay girls, first of all I have got to ask for all of your forgiveness. I have been TERRIBLE about posting on Gourmet Gals. Our life has been in complete chaos lately . . . transitionining from Thailand to the US, traveling and staying in different people's homes, and not even cooking my own meals. But I really love this blog and I check it often. Since I've started cooking some lately I promise to be better about posting. :)

And as soon as we move to Arkansas I will definitely be posting much much more (we move in a couple more months).

I made Thai food and this fruit pizza a couple nights ago for dessert when we had some friends over. I love this recipe and it usually turns out really yummy . . . this time I cut the pieces of fruit too big and the cookie was a little too done. But minus those mistakes its a GREAT easy dessert.

Fruit Pizza

1 18oz. package refrigerated cookie dough (or you can make your dough homemade, which is even yummier)
1 80z. package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 t. vanilla
4 cups fresh fruit
1/4 cup orange marmalade or apricot/peach preserves
1 T. orange juice

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut dough into 1/8 inch slices; line 14" pizza pan with slices & press to form crust. Bake for 12 min. or until lightly browned; cool.

Blend cream cheese, sugar, & vanilla. Spread over cookie crust. Arrange fruit over cream cheese. Combine orange marmalade or preserves & orange juice & drizzle over fruit. Chill for 1 hour before serving.

enjoy. :)
