Fruit Pizza with White Chocolate
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.

- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon baking
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups vanilla baking chips
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 cup
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 teaspoon
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
- For the crust: Cream together butter, shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar with electric
mixer. Beat in eggs.

Beat flour mixture into butter mixture to form a stiff dough. Press dough into a
rectangle as large as the baking sheet.

on HIGH for 60 to 90 seconds, or until chips are melted and smooth after stirring.
