Mystery Author: Strong Women, Great Stories

My photo

I write three series: The Loser Mysteries, The Dead Detective Mysteries & the Simon & Elizabeth (Tudor) Mysteries as well as stand-alones that offer readers "Strong Women, Great Stories."
These days I also answer to Maggie Pill, who writes a cozy sleuth series. Maggie is a lot like Peg, just younger, cooler, and funnier.

Fruit Pizza

I don't claim this one is exactly healthy, but it does have fruit, and you can make it look very festive by focusing on reds and greens.

Make sugar cookie dough and flatten it onto a lightly greased pizza pan. You can use your own recipe or even store-bought, but here's one that works:

Crust:
1 c. butter or margarine
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
Blend butter, sugar, egg & almond extract well. Mix flour, soda, and tartar and blend in.
Bake in 375 degree oven until lightly browned. Cool.

Topping
When cool crust is completely cool, spread with topping.
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Fruit:
Top with fresh fruit: pineapple, strawberries, kiwi, bananas, etc. (Note: I've never gotten as creative as the pic above, but someday I might!)
