Colossal Cookie with Fresh Fruit Topping

Easy and delicious–a taste of summer before the berries disappear until next year.


Cookie:

  • 1 Cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Topping:

  • 1 8-oz. package cream cheese (we like reduced fat Neufchâtel cheese)
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, washed
  • 1/2 pint blueberries, washed
  • 3 TB. VANILLA SUGAR
  • 1 TB. RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT
       

Cookie: Preheat oven to 375°. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and the VANILLA; mix well. Stir together the flour and baking powder, then gradually add to the butter mixture on low speed. Knead the dough briefly into a smooth ball. Place the dough on an ungreased pizza pan and pat out gently to the edges. Bake 10-12 minutes until the crust is golden at the edges. Let cool on the pan before adding the topping.

Topping: Set aside a nice whole strawberry for the center. Quarter the rest into a bowl and sprinkle with VANILLA SUGAR. Stir vigorously to get the strawberry juice to start seeping out; cover and set aside for 15 minutes. Beat the cream cheese with the sugar and VANILLA until creamy. Spread over the cooled cookie crust almost to the edge. Place the perfect strawberry in the middle, sprinkle blueberries uniformly over the crust. Spoon the strawberries on. Mix the RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT into the strawberry syrup at the bottom of the strawberry bowl—it will thicken just enough to make a nice glaze. You don't need too much glaze—just a bit will do. Use a spoon to drizzle the glaze over the berries and refrigerate until ready to serve. Refrigerating thickens the glaze a bit more.
