Going for the Gold: Olympic Fruit Tart

Hosting an Olympic themed party, try this cute and festive dessert, you may take home the gold.

Olympic Fruit Tart

2 packages of dry sugar cookie mix

1 80z tub Cool Whip

12 oz cream cheese softened

1 t vanilla extract

2 T sugar

1 cup apple jelly

about 1/2 c each of:

Raspberries, Blackberries, Pineapple, Blueberries, and Green Grapes

Mix up sugar cookie dough according to package directions, spread into a large rectangular cookie sheet sprayed with non stick spray. Cook for about 15 minutes or until cookie is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Flip cookie onto a large flat board or platter (you can leave in pan if desired). To make frosting, combine cool whip, cream cheese, vanilla and sugar in a large bowl, I used my kitchen aid mixer with the paddle attachment, you could use a hand mixer or food processor. Beat about 4 minutes on high or until no longer lumpy. Spread on cooled cookie.

To make olympic rings use a small bowl and make circular indentations onto the frosting.

Use the fruit to make rings, Chop black berries and grapes in half, and pineapple into small pieces

Melt apple jelly in a small sauce pan over med/low heat and brush over tart with a silicone brush.

Put in refrigerator until ready to serve.
