Fruit Pizza


This is my SIL, Theresa's recipe and I think it's just THE BEST! Enjoy!

Crust:
1.5 c. flour
3/4 c. butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar
Other Ingredients:
8 oz. cream cheese
3.5 c. powdered sugar
12 oz. Cool Whip
3 baskets strawberries, sliced
4 kiwi, peeled and sliced
2 cans mandarin oranges, drained
Glaze:
1 c. sugar
3 Tbs. cornstarch
1/2 c. water
Mix together the ingredients for the crust. Separate dough into two large tart baking dishes or put all the dough in a 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely. Meanwhile, cream the cream cheese and powdered sugar until well-blended. Fold in Cool Whip. Spread mixture over cooled crust. Arrange fruit over cream cheese mixture.
For glaze: In small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually add water and cook over medium heat to bring to a boil. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Pour glaze over fruit. Chill for 30 minutes.
