Patriotic Cookie Pizza

Yummy yummy dessert! Last week, another co-worker had a birthday, and I know she likes to try to be somewhat healthy. Thus, I thought I might find something sweet to make her with some fruit. I'm enjoying some of the recipes I've made with Pillsbury products, so I checked out their website and found this Patriotic Cookie Pizza. I thought it was great to find a recipe that uses their refrigerated sugar cookies and doesn't have overly complicated ingredients.
Here's how to make this very well-received dessert!
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 cups fresh raspberries
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup apple jelly, melted
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. Cut cookie dough into 1/4-inch slices; place in pan. With floured fingers, press evenly over bottom to form crust.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool completely, about 25 minutes.
In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and lemon peel until fluffy. Spread over baked crust.
Arrange raspberries in large star shape in center. (I decided to forgo the star since I wasn't making this for a patriotic holiday).
Arrange blueberries around raspberries. Drizzle or brush with melted jelly. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Store in refrigerator.
