My family enjoys this dessert anytime of the year, but it's especially refreshing during the hot months. You can use whatever fruits are in season. —Ida Ruth Wenger, Harrisonburg, Virginia

MY REVIEW

"Great recipe! Can use warmed jelly in place of glaze to save a little time."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 12, 2016

"yum, yummy and yummiest! Much better when the topping sits a bit and softens the cookie as a previous reviewer recommended. I slice portions of the pizza without fruit, and then spoon the cut-up fruit over each serving - no cutting thru the fruit and squashing the topping. Much nicer and easier!"

MY REVIEW

"This was so good. Believe it or or, my husband and I both thought it was better the next day after the cookie became a little softer! I used lite whipped cream and couldn't tell a difference. Next time I may try using reduced fat cream cheese too. Either way, it was delicious."

"These were beautiful and very tasty. I made two for my son's wedding, and one didn't make it to the reception! Great for a Summer occasion, when fresh fruit is available."
