Old Glory Dessert

This recipe takes advantage of convenient refrigerated cookie dough to create the crust for this fresh fruit dessert. Easily arranged berries give it an appealing patriotic appearance.

Yield

12 to 15 servings

Ingredients

1 (18 ounce) tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough*
2 packages (one 8 ounce, one 3 ounce) cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup confectioners' (powdered) sugar
4 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
2 cups quartered fresh strawberries

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with Pan Release or baking spray with flour. Press cookie dough into prepared baking pan.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire cooling rack.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Set aside 1/4 cup. Spread remaining cream cheese mixture over crust. Decorate with blueberries and strawberries to resemble a flag.

Cut a small hole in a corner of a pastry or plastic bag. Insert star tip #16. Fill with reserved cream cheese mixture. Beginning in one corner, pipe stars in the spaces between the blueberries.

Additional Information

* 2 cups of any sugar cookie dough can be substituted for the refrigerated dough.
