I have signed up to bring a dessert pizza to a gathering this weekend. Please hold while I see if I can find a recipe for the same downstairs.
Hurrah for Paula Deen! Found a wonderful little collection titled The Lady & Sons Just Desserts. Oh yeah! (I happen to love her Key Lime Pie , the one that uses four egg yolks is the best.) Simply organized into categories such as cakes, pies, cookies & bars, and “More Sweet Things,” this cook book opens with three lovely family stories and a terrific section called “Hints & Tips” that includes instructions for peeling a coconut. Good stuff!
Banana Split Brownie Pizza
20 oz box Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix (plus ingredients to prepare)
8 oz package cream cheese, softened
8 oz can crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
2 T sugar
2 bananas, sliced and tossed in lemon juice to prevent browning
1 C fresh strawberries, sliced
1 C chopped nuts
Chocolate ice cream topping or chocolate syrup for drizzling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 15-inch pizza pan.
Prepare brownie mix according to directions on box. Pour onto prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until done. Cool completely.
Beat cream cheese, pineapple, and sugar together in a bowl. Use any reserved pineapple juice at this time if needed to soften mixture to a good spreading consistency. Spread mixture over brownie crust. Arrange banana and strawberry slices over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and drizzle with chocolate topping. Refrigerate.
Slice like a pizza and enjoy! Serves 8 to 10.
C = Cup; T = Tablespoon.
Yummy in my tummy, I’m thinking!
Enjoy the remaining sunshine and the crazy classic cars and have a great weekend, everyone!
