Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Sugar Cookie Crust:
1 cup butter -- softened
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 t. vanilla
1/4 t. almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Orange Sauce:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 t. orange zest
1/4 t. lemon zest
1 cup fresh orange juice
2 T. fresh lemon juice
4 t. cornstarch

2 packages softened cream cheese -- (8 ounces each)
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fruit of choice: (about 7 cups total)
strawberries, kiwi, pineapple,
mandarin oranges, peaches, bananas,
grapes, raspberries, blueberries, etc.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light . Mix in egg and extracts beating well.

Combine the dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture and mix until combined.

Divide the dough in half and press into two 12 inch pizza pans that have been lightly greased (can use parchment paper). Lightly flour your fingertips if necessary.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden; cool.

To prepare the orange sauce, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture is thick. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Cover and cool sauce without stirring.

For the filling, beat cream cheese with powdered sugar and vanilla until light. Spread on cooled crust.

Prepare desired fruit and dry on paper towels.

Arrange fruit on top of filling in a decorative pattern. Glaze fruit with orange sauce and chill. Best served the same day you assemble it but leftovers are still good providing you dried your fruit off.
