Ingredients

Cookie Crust

  • ½ cup salted butter softened
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Toppings

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Kiwi
  • Peaches
  • Pineapple
  • Banana
  • Mango
  • Canned mandarin oranges drained

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 14-inch pizza pan or baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or spraying with cooking spray and dusting with flour.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg, lemon zest, and vanilla, mixing well until combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt, mixing until combined.
  • Pat the cookie dough into the pan, pressing it in a thin layer all the way to the edges. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, just until the edges of the crust are a light golden brown. Don't overbake so the cookie stays soft. Cool completely.
  • While the cookie crust cools, beat the cream cheese in a medium bowl for 1 minute until creamy and smooth. Add the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract, beating until combined.
  • Spread over the cookie crust, then top in a decorative design with the fruit of your choosing. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve. Best the day it is made.

Notes

  • You can make the cookie crust 1 day in advance and wrap it in plastic wrap. Store at room temperature overnight and assemble the next day just before serving. Store any leftovers in the fridge for 1-2 days.
