My BLOG friend, Dawn of

This may not seem like dinner to all of you, but with
HOT days, this with some refreshing Mint Sweet Tea is just RIGHT. You can add your fave fruits ,even
a bit of nuts for a delightful taste.

Fresh Fruit PizzaRecipe





1 (17-ounce) package sugar cookie dough
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon almond, lemon or orange extract
3 cups fruit, fresh bananas, pineapple chunks, maraschino cherries, fresh oranges cut into rounds and peeled, blueberries, strawberries and peaches
1/2 cup orange marmalade
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll out cookie dough large enough to cover a round pizza pan. Bake 8 to 15 minutes or until firm. Cool completely. Mix together cream cheese and extract. Spread cream cheese mixture over cooled cookie dough crust. Arrange fruit in circles (like a bulls eye pattern). Slightly warm marmalade and brush over fruit. Serve immediately.


Mint Sweet Tea

*After bringing your water(2 cups)
to a boil, pour into your glass
pitcher*

*add 1/2 cup of sugar*
stir to dissovle
(boiling water makes the sugar SWEETER)
add your mint *FRESH* of course*

*I use 2 bags of tea (the "makes a gallon "size tea bags)
let it steep*


*I only drink iced tea out of GLASS
so , I pour my steeped tea over
LOTS of ice
and enjoy*

YUM

* Mint Lemonade*

here's fun twist
instead of TEA
make lemonade
the same way with fresh lemons
