Ingredients:  
1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
*Some of the users suggested using 7oz marshmallow fluff instead of the whipcream. Something to try...

Your favorite fruit to top it: I like using strawberries, blueberries, and kiwis.
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon orange zest

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice cookie dough and arrange on greased pizza pan (I used a 12 inch pan), overlapping edges. Press dough flat into pan. You really don't have to slice it, you can just press it in the pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool.

In a large bowl, soften cream cheese, beat until fluffy, then fold in the whipped topping (or add marshmallow fluff). Spread over cooled crust. You can chill for a while at this point, or continue by arranging the fruit.

Begin with sliced strawberries. Arrange in a circle around the outside edge. Continue with fruit of your choice, working towards the middle. If bananas are used, dip them in lemon juice so they don't darken. Then make a sauce to spoon over fruit.

In a saucepan, combine sugar, salt, corn starch, orange juice, lemon juice and water. Cook and stir over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes, until thickened. Remove from heat, and add grated orange rind. Allow to cool, but not set up. Spoon over fruit. Chill for two hours, then cut into wedges and serve.
