Fruit Pizza

This is the epitome of summer desserts for me.  It is light and sweet and just plain delicious.

1/4 cup sugar
1 stick butter, soft but not melted
1 cup flour

8 oz cream cheese softened
1 jar marshmallow cream
8 oz cool whip

Your choice of fresh fruit.  Berries, bananas, grapes and kiwis work well.
1-11oz can mandarin oranges
1tsp cornstarch mixed with 1 Tbsp water

Preheat oven to 350*F.  In a 9X13" pan mix together the butter, sugar and flour with a fork until all combined.  Using fingers pat into an even layer over bottom of pan.  Bake for 15-20 min or until lightly golden brown.  Remove and cool completely.
In medium bowl beat together the cream cheese and marshmallow cream until smooth.  Stir in the cool whip.  Spread over cooled crust.
Drain mandarin oranges reserving juice.  In small saucepan heat reserved juice, 1-2 Tbsp sugar and 3 Tbsp water; bring to a boil.  Stir in dissolved cornstarch until thickened.  Cool completely.
Wash and prepare fruit cutting into pieces if needed.  Top cream cheese filling with fruit.  Spoon thickened juice over top of fruit.  Chill until ready to eat.
