Christmas Fruit Pizza

elizabethlane.jpgChristmas Fruit Pizza

one pkg yellow cake mix

 (orange, butter pecan & fudge work too)

two eggs

one-fourth cup water

one-fourth cup butter

one-fourth cup packed brown sugar

one-half to one cup chopped nuts

 

Mix together, it will be thick. 

Spread in a circle on large cookie sheet and bake 10 -12 minutes at 350, or until golden brown. 

Cool.

 

Spread top with whipping cream (Cool Whip works, too). 

Use any kind of fruit to top the whipping cream. 

Melt apricot jam and brush on the fruit.

 

Ideas for Christmas: 

Kiwi slices cut in half for leaves. 

Strawberries cut in half for poinsettia leaves and pineapple tidbits for center of flowers. 

Green grapes work well, too.

 

See examples below.

  1. Elizabeth, what a terrific recipe and gorgeous pix! This is definitely going on my keeper list. I definitely say “cool” to this 🙂 oxoxoxox

  2. These are beautiful! A feast for the eyes as well as the palate.

  3. I can’t claim any responsibility for the gorgeous photos. The recipe is my sister’s, which I’ve tasted (it’s delicious) but never made.
    I did wonder about getting the crust base off the cookie sheet in one piece. You may want to bake it on wax paper or bake it on a round pizza pan for serving. Enjoy.

  4. Oh, Elizabeth, I’m going to have to try this. It looks absolutely wonderful! It’ll make a great dessert for my New Year’s blackeyed peas.

  5. Elizbeth,

  7. Hi Elizabeth – this is beautiful! I will definitely try it — looks like it’ll work for summer parties too. Love fresh fruit ideas!!
    Happy New Year!

  8. There are so many ways you can decorate this – like red, white and blue for the 4th of July. The ones in the photos are masterpieces.
