Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup diced fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 large kiwifruit, peeled and chopped

Directions

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugars. Beat in the egg, melted chocolate and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Place waxed paper over a 15-in. x 10-in. baking sheet without sides. Shape dough into a flattened rectangle and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover dough with waxed paper; roll dough to within 1/4 in. of edges of baking sheet. Remove top sheet of waxed paper; invert dough onto another greased baking sheet. Remove remaining waxed paper.
Using a 4-1/2-in. diameter plate or bowl and a knife, trace three touching circles along a long side of the dough. Trace two more circles centered below and overlapping upper circles by 1 in. Cut around outer edges of the rings; remove dough around rings and use to make cookies if desired. Bake rings at 350° for 14-16 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Add whipped topping; mix well. Transfer cooled crust to a serving platter. Spread with frosting. On top rings, from left to right, place blueberries, blackberries and strawberries. Place pineapple and kiwi on lower rings. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 12-16 servings.

"This is awesome! Its a great way to get kids involved with current events and eat their fruit too. I simplified this recipe with store bought sugar cookie dough. Still very good and a lot of fun for the kids!"
