fruit pizza

i finally talked to my long lost friend jeannie today. one of the sweetest, most tender-hearted moms i know. she's holding her applesauce chocolate-chip cookie recipe hostage for my fruit pizza recipe. so per her request, here's my recipe for fruit pizza (yummy, yummy). 

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 1/3 c. flour
1 t. cream of tartar
1/2 t. baking soda

cream butter and sugar. mix in egg, then add dry ingredients. press into a greased half sheet pan. bake at 350 for 10 minutes. let cool. 

8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. sugar
2 T pineapple juice

mix together and spread over cooled crust. top with any fruit, but i like to have a variety of colors and place them in rows: blueberries, kiwis, raspberries, strawberries, mandarin oranges, bananas (only if you're eating it quickly or they will get squishy and brown), pineapple, mangoes, etc. 

3/4 c. pineapple juice
1 T cornstarch
cook in a small saucepan until clear. drizzle over fruit. chill pizza for at least 3 hours before serving. 

miss you, jeannie! enjoy the fruit pizza -- now hand over that cookie recipe!
