March 8-Mom's Fruit Pizza

Okay, so it's not exactly dinner, but it is an old family favorite and definitely worth a share. Growing up, this light dessert was served at just about every holiday and was always one of my favorite treats.

When it was my turn to provide refreshments for our small group, I knew that this would be the perfect snack. Our small group is made up of quiet a few master bakers, so the recipe had quite a bit to live up to. And so it did; Compliments were flowing all night (Thanks, Mom!).
