FRUIT PIZZA SQUARES
1 tube (20-oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 pkg (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
Pineapple slices, drained if canned
Maraschino cherries, halved
Kiwi, peeled and sliced then halved
¼ cup orange marmalade
1 tablespoon water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice cookie dough as directed on package. Arrange the slices on a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan. Using floured fingers, press the cookie dough evenly into the pan sealing all seams. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool completely.
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until fluffy. Spread mixture over the cooled cookie crust. Arrange the fruit over the mixture.
In a small bowl, combine the orange marmalade and water, blending well. Spoon the marmalade over the fruit. Refrigerate the pizza at least an hour before serving.
Cut into squares to serve.
