Fruit Tart with a Sugar Cookie Crust...

I really love making this dessert because it is one of those ones that look really difficult to make, but isn't!  What you need is a roll of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, cream cheese and what ever type of fruit you would like to use.

Here is what you do.... Slice the cookie dough and place in a circular pattern on a cookie sheet.  Press the slices together so you have one really big cookie!  Keep in mind that when it cooks, it will be quite a bit larger.  Once you have the size and shape you want, bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.  I like the top to be just a little bit brown.

While your crust is baking, combine 1 package of cream cheese, 1/3 cup of sugar and 3 tsp. of vanilla.  Beat so it comes nice and creamy.  When the crust is cooked and cooled, spread the cream cheese over the top.  Alll you have to do now is arrange your fruit on top.  If you want the fruit to have a "shiny" look, simply mix some flavor of preserve (either peach or orange marmelade....whatever you would like) with a little water, and paint over the fruit.  Easy, beautiful, and delicious!
