"STRAWBERRY PIZZA"

This is my family's favorite dessert when the fresh strawberries are available, It's as pretty as it is good, and it's nummy.
Start with a roll of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough,(or you can make your own roll, wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate a day or so)
Slice cookie roll 1/4 in.or less, place on a round pizza pan close enough together so that it bakes into 1 lg. cookie, let cool.
Mix 8 oz. cream cheese with 1/3 cup conf.sugar and 1 or 2 tsp.vanilla, add just barely enough milk or cool whip to make it spreadable,
spread on cookie,
slice 1 qt. strawberries lengthwise and spread over cr. cheese mixture,
then 1 pkg. strawberry glaze spread over berries, make sure they are all covered so they don't dry out.
chill and serve.
Very easy to make,beautiful to look at and oh so good.
Every where I've taken it it gets rave reviews and disappears quickly. I hope you try it, If you like strawberries, you will love it.

"MYSTERY CAKE"

1 pkg of yellow cake mix
4 cups minature marshmallows
1 can of pie filling of choice
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray cake pan 13x9x2 with non-sticking cooking spray.
Pour the marshmallows in the cake pan. Set aside
Make cake batter according to pkg directions
Pour cake batter over marshmallows
Now spoon the pie filling over the batter
Bake for 45 minutes. The mystery is that the marshmallows will rise to the top and make a meringue like top. The pie filling will go to the bottom.
I used strawberry pie filling. It is so moist and ever sooooooo good and yummmmmmy. I guess you could use any flavor of cake mix.
