Recipe Review..."Philadelphia Fruit Pizza"

I don't know if you have been on Pinterest yet but it is an amazing site.  On my personal site I have boards of various topics....travel, fashion, dogs, decorating the list goes on and on.  One of my boards I have titled "Recipes I Want to Try".  I save recipes that look good to me on this site and pick one from time to time to try.  Well this week I decided to attempt Philadelphia Fruit Pizza.
























I studied the recipe...


what you need

1
pkg. (16.5 oz.) refrigerated sliceable sugar cookies, sliced
1
pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/4
cup sugar
1/2
tsp. vanilla
4
cups assorted cut-up fruit (kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, drained canned mandarin oranges)
1/4
cup apricot preserves, pressed through sieve to remove lumps (after adding the water:-)
1
Tbsp. water (I added a bit more)

make it

HEAT oven to 375°F.
LINE 12-inch pizza pan with foil; spray with cooking spray. Arrange cookie dough slices in single layer in prepared pan; press together to form crust. Bake 14 min.; cool completely. Invert onto plate; carefully remove foil. Turn crust over.
BEAT cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer until well blended. Spread over crust. (I added a bit of milk for a better spreading consistency )
TOP with fruit. Mix preserves and water; brush over fruit. Refrigerate 2 hours.

  2. Lovely recipe! I wonder how Stevia would work instead of sugar... and I'd like to try Smuckers sugar free preserves to help cut down on some of the sugar. I use Stevia in everything these days. Once you get used to it, it is really good and quite sweet. I lvoe cream cheese; frosting, pastries, on bagels,you get the idea! So I need ot cut corners elsewhere that I can, :-) lol

    You take GREAT photos! What kind of camera are you using?
    By the way I found your blog when I was looking the other day for Easter pictures. The flowers were gorgeous.
    Well enough chatter. I'll check back for your responses!
    Oh HOW HE loves you Kathiey!
