Fruit Pizza

Assorted Fresh Fruit (blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, raspberries, blackberries)

1 Egg

3 cups All purpose flour

1/2 tsp Almond extract

2 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup Golden Eagle Syrup

1 cup Butter

Cream Cheese Topping

8 oz cream cheese (at room temperature)

1/2 cup Golden Eagle Syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 8oz Cool Whip ( thawed)

Preheat oven to 350° F. In the bowl of your mixer cream butter and sugar until smooth, at least 3 minutes. Beat in extracts and egg. In a separate bowl combine baking powder, salt and flour. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time to the wet ingredients. DO NOT CHILL THE DOUGH. Flour all side of the dough so it does not stick to your hands. Line pizza pan with parchment paper and press into the pizza pan, making sure you get the dough as even as possible. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until its starts to turn golden brown. Let cool on the pizza pan. While cookie is cooling mix cream cheese, vanilla, and syrup together with a hand mixer. Then gently fold in Cool Whip. Store in refrigerator until the cookie is completely cool. When cookie is completely cooled spread cream cheese mixture over cookie and arrange fresh fruit on top in desired design. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
