This recipe is very EASY and DELICIOUS and loved by all in my town! It is a sugar cookie crust with a milky layer of white chocolate and cream cheese, topped with your favorite fruit choices and a glaze! Substitute any fruit you like for the strawberries, and any fruit juice or juice from any canned fruits you use for the pineapple juice.

  • For the crust: Cream together butter, shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar with electric mixer. Beat in eggs. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Beat flour mixture into butter mixture to form a stiff dough. Press dough into a rectangle as large as the baking sheet.

  • Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown.

  • For the filling: In medium microwave safe bowl, microwave vanilla chips and cream on high 60 to 90 seconds, or until chips are melted and smooth after stirring. Beat in cream cheese with electric mixer until creamy. Spread on cooled cookie crust.

  • For the topping: Arrange sliced fruit decoratively over filling. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, pineapple and lemon juices. Stir and cook until sugar dissolves and mixture thickens. Pour over fruit. Refrigerate until serving.

This was FABULOUS. I took it to a casual wine and cheese party with some co-workers. Everyone LOVED it. I too made it with Ghiradelli white chocalate, I also left out the heavy cream by mistake. That mistake turned out to be a blessing in diguise, the filling turned out very rich and delicious! I used sliced strawberries, peaches, kiwi, pinapple and blueberries. The glaze was perfectly thick for me, keep in mind that cornstarch does not reach it's full thickening power until it comes to a SIMMER. I brought the glaze to a simmer and let it simmer for about 30 seconds until it was thick. Read More

Where do I start? The cookie "dough" which was more like a batter that I had to spread with a spatula puffed up and spilled down over onto to bottom of the oven and burned. After I cleaned that up and cleared the smoke from my kitchen I used an 18 oz. sugar cookie dough. Thank goodness I thought to buy one just in case. The cream cheese and white chocolate formed a very weird slimy consistency when mixed together and I ended up taking half of that and mixing in a half tub of Cool Whip which made it much fluffier and 1/4 cup of lemon juice to take away the sickening sweetness of it. I waited till about 2 hours before I served it to frost it and arrange the fruit so it wouldn't get soggy. I used kiwi strawberries blackberries and mandarin oranges. It turned out wonderful but the original recipe is terrible. What a waste of time and unnecessary stress. Read More

This is easy a beautiful presentation and delicious. I used fresh pineapple strawberries blueberries kiwi and peaches arranged over a heart shaped crust for Valentine's Day. Everyone went crazy over it. P.S. For a very easy and delicious crust I just spread out a package of refrigerated Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. Read More

This was very well liked at an office potluck! I reduced the fat by using Neufchatel instead of cream cheese and replacing the 4 Tablespoons cream with a scant 1 tablespoon of 1% milk. I was out of pineapple juice so made the glaze with orange juice. Also added 1 tsp. vanilla and the grated rind of one orange to the crust. Next time I plan to try a shortbread cookie recipe for the crust as the crust was a little sweeter than I cared for. (Everyone else LOVED the crust as it was). For the fruit I used kiwis strawberries oranges and bananas (dipped in lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown). I laid the fruit in diagonal stripes and it looked like a colorful Mexican blanket... beautiful! Read More

DELICIOUS! I cheated and used premade sugar cookie dough but the glaze and the cream cheese spread (I used white chocolate chips) were just amazing! Also I made individual circular pizzas and used strawberries pineapple mandarin oranges and kiwi. Looked and tasted great! My book club gave it rave reviews! Thanks Lynisa! Read More

WOW!! I took this to our July 4th family picnic and everybody loved it!! I used blueberries and rasberries and my own sugar cookie dough recipe (but only b/c I had some frozen) it was delish. The only reason I brought some home is b/c my husband hid some to bring home:) Will definitely make again. Read More

This was pretty good but I would add a tub of cool whip to the white chocolate mixture next time. I think it would make it a bit more fluffy. Read More

This is sooo awesome! I used the juice from a can of lychees for an Asian influenced dessert. I used lychees kiwis bananas strawberries and blueberries. I had my husband pick up an empty pizza box from the closest pizza place to serve the fruit pizza at a friend's get-to-gether. The box added a unique twist and it was a hit!! I wanted to make life easier and rolled out a refrigerated sugar cookie dough instead. Besides being a beautiful dessert this is so delicious! Read More

This was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. I highly recommend to use fresh fruit not canned. I bought the pinneapple already cut in it's own juice and though it may be a bit more expensive it's definitley worth it. Also I used Ghiradelli white chocolate chips and it was wonderful. The only problem I had was with the glaze it wasn't as thick as I thought it could have been so I only used a little bit because I didn't want the crust to be soggy. I would definitely use this one again. Read More
