Gift Auction Update
– Woodlake Country Club
only about 12 weeks to go, we are up and running! Our solicitation committee
is ready to solicate (but could use a little help if anyone has some time that they can spare – even a morning or two!),
the shopping continues, and have also contacted a number of past contributors to secure donations, as well as contacted some
new ones, and have secured promises on other wonderful donations!
will be available at the General Meeting. Tickets are $34, but members can purchase
one ticket at the cost of the luncheon, which is $24. Please make checks payable
to JWOT. If you cannot make the meetings, you can send the checks directly to
me, and I will mail you your tickets.
up sheets will be passed around during the July meetings, and all meetings leading up to the big day. Remember, if you can give just and hour or so of your time it would help a lot. Last year the auction was terrific, with so many members helping out the day of the auction, and that is
why it was such a success! Please keep in mind that no one worked during the
actual lunch service, so you can spend the time enjoying lunch with your friends!

Carol Kezel’s Fruit Pizza
Time – 25 min.
time - 2 hrs. 25 min.
12 servings, I wedge each
(20oz.) refrigerated sliceable sugar cookies
(8oz) Philadelphia Cream Cheese – softened (soften cream cheese by completely unwrapping cream cheese and placing on
a microwave safe plate…Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds)
fruit such as sliced kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, drained canned mandarin orange segments…..
Apricot Preserves (pressed thru a sieve to remove lumps)
oven to 375.
a 12 inch pizza pan with foil
foil with cooking spray
cookie dough into 1/8 inch slices and place on foil overlapping pieces slightly and pressing edges to seal to form a crust
for 12-14 minutes until golden brown, remove from oven to cool.
onto a serving plate and carefully remove foil
again onto serving plate or tray so crust is right side up (I invert it back onto the pizza plate and serve it on there as
it makes it easier to transport and cut into wedges)
Cream Cheese, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixture on medium speed until well blended….spread over cookie crust
fruit over Cream Cheese layer starting in the middle and forming decorative circles of fruit
Apricot Preserves and water and spread over fruit ( I use a pastry brush)
for at least 2 hours
into wedges before serving
what it should look like go to: www.kraftfoods.com…go to Recipe Search and type in Fruit Pizza, several will come up…this
one is called Philadelphia Fruit Pizza. On the bottom of the page you can click on comments and read about other ingredients
and tips for this recipe.
used it in our family for years and it is especially nice for a summer BBQ, bridal or baby shower!!! You can use just strawberries
and blueberries for a patriotic theme. I even had it one year in place of a Birthday
Hope you all try
it and enjoy it!!
