Here's a fun idea for the 4th of July, or anytime for that matter. I made the fruit into a star design after seeing this last year that Trisha from sweetology101.blogspot.com/ made. Other times, I just make a decorative pattern with the fruit. It's soooo good and it feeds a crowd!
1 pkg. refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 t. cinnnamon, optional
1 t. vanilla
Strawberries, blueberries. (other times, add mandarin oranges, grapes, kiwi, raspberries, etc.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the sugar cookie dough into slices and place on a pizza pan or baking stone. The slices should touch each other, but they will expand to fill in the spaces. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Mix the cream cheese, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla together until blended. Spread on the cooled sugar cookie . Arrange fruit in a star pattern.
