The Infamous Morris Family Fruit Dessert Pizza

This classic Morris family recipe has become so infamous I actually found three copies of it in my own recipe book!

One frozen sugar cookie dough rolled out like one big giant cookie.
One philly cream cheese whipped with one cool whip.
Tons of fresh fruit.
Glaze: Heat one cup of orange juice plus 1/2 cup sugar and whisk in 1 tbsp corn starch. This will keep your fruit from turning brown.
