favorite fruit recipes

"Fruit Pizza" - this was always a frequent request to my mom from my friends whenever mama was bringing a dish to a particular party/gathering. A huge favorite of mine that my mom did when I was growing up! I have now baked this for Bridal showers, 4th of July gatherings & just for fun! It's yummy & hey!...it's healthy because it has fruit! :)
You will need:
1 lg roll Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough
1 cup confectioners sugar
8 oz cream cheese
1 sm cool whip
Mash cookie doug onto pizza pan & bake 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.
Mix & spread the filling on crust.

Top with sliced fresh fruit - strawberries, peaches, blueberries & kiwi

"Chicken pesto sandwiches"
You will need:
Hamburger buns
Chicken breasts (as many as you want to fix)
Gala apples (1-2)
Cheese (whichever kind you prefer)

Grill your chicken breasts. While they're grilling, spread your pesto on the top side of the bun. Place your grilled chicken breast on bottom layer of bun. Top with cheese & thin slices of Gala apple.

Enjoy! Super easy & fun!
