Ingredients:  
Crust:
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

Frosting:
6 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

To finish:
Fresh fruit, sliced as needed (I used blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, green grapes, and kiwi)
1/4 cup trained apricot jam to glaze, optional

Directions:
Directions:
1. Cream the butter and sugar with a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
2. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes, but longer is better to prevent spreading when baked.
3. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 12-inch pizza pan and pat the cold cookie dough into a flat round. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until very light brown. Do not over-bake. Cool before frosting.
4. To make frosting, whip the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and lemon juice and mix until combined. Add the powdered sugar and mix until well incorporated.
5. Spread frosting over cooled crust leaving about -inch of the edge unfrosted. Arrange fruit in concentric circles as desired.
6. To glaze, heat the strained apricot jam with a teaspoon of water. I used the microwave. Using a pastry brush, glaze the fruit.
To serve, cut in wedges.
