    I love when the kids come up with creative things to play!!!!

  Speaking of play, we got out some old sheets this weekend.  Would you believe that purple floral number used to grace my bed as a child?  Helloooooo 1980’s!

  I love how something as simple as a set of old sheets can promote hours of play.  From Rapunzel hair to Super man capes, Baby transportation, to baby Jesus, and the grand finale of Pillow Sack races!  They tried it all and had a blast doing it!

Recipe time! 

After giving out this recipe to my best friend, I had a MAJOR Fruit Pizza craving and a major problem;  the only fresh fruit I had was pineapple.  So I dug in the deep freeze and pulled some Peaches, Blackberries and Blueberries that we froze last summer.  This was not going to be a beautiful Fruit Pizza, but by golly, it was sure going to taste good!

  My favorite part about this Fruit Pizza, and the thing I think that makes it unique from other recipes you’ve tried, is the Blueberry glaze you make to layer on top of the cream cheese layer.  Super YUMMY!

  Here is the recipe, excuse the picture, I told you I had to use what I had on hand, there was no time to scurry off to the store!133

Crust:

1 1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 sticks soft butter

Mix ingredients well.  Pat into pizza pan or circle stone from Pampered Chef.  Bake 12 minutes at 350*.  Cool, then loosen cookie from stone using the back side of a large bread knife. 

Cream Cheese Layer:

Combine 1 pkg. Cream cheese and 1/4 cup sugar, spread over cooled cookie.

Blueberry glaze:

2 cups fresh, or still frozen blueberries

1 1/2 T. Cornstarch

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

  In saucepan, combine above ingredients except berries.  Cook, stirring until clear, thick and gel-like.  Remove from heat.  Add drained berries.  Spread on top of cream cheese layer.

  Decorate with fruit of your choice.

Dig in! Betcha there won’t be any left!  But, a word to the wise, IF there is any remaining, its great on day 2, but is soggy by day 3.  So eat up!

Happy Baking!
