Step 1: Getting Started....
Approx. 18 oz of sugar cookie dough.
1- 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened.
1/4 cup sugar.
1- 8oz tub of frozen whipped topping, thawed.
1- 15 oz can pineapple chunks in juice, drained.
1- 15 oz can mandarin oranges in light syrup, drained.
1- Kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced. ( I sometimes use 2 kiwi fruits, but I love kiwi)
1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced.
1- half pint fresh blueberries.
1- 12" round pan ( I like to use one that is at least 1-2 inches deep)
***For the sugar cookie dough, you can either home make it or you can buy refrigerated sugar cookie dough from the store. If you buy it, I recommend you buy the one that does not have the sugar crystals on the top. There is a slight taste difference. I have made it both with homemade and store bought. Both ways are good. Just depends on how much time you have and what your preference is.
***On the fruit, If you do not like some of the fruits that I use to make it with, you can substitute it with any kind of fruits that you would like. (Thus making the recipe your own.) It is good with all kinds of different fruits, you are not limited to these.
