Here is an easy dessert that uses only three ingredients, all of which can be found at your local grocery store! It's also an alternative to a rich and gooey chocolate dessert, though that would be good too :)
I used Cool Whip Lite. I didn't use the entire 8-ounce container (only half). I bought Cool Whip because it was on sale at Meijer, you can certainly buy the generic version of whipped topping from your favorite grocery store.
Since you're only using half of the container, you can toss the remaining whipped topping into the fridge or freezer to use at a later date. Meijer also had a good deal going on fresh strawberries, so that was my fruit of choice to put on top. Use whatever fresh fruit you want, such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or a combination of all or some. You could also use canned fruit, like pineapple tidbits, just drain all the juice out and pat dry with a paper towel. Feel free to design the fruit into whatever shape your heart desires!
16.5 ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough (any brand)
4 ounces whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
Fruit of choice, rinsed and patted dry
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an ungreased 9-inch pie pan, press sugar cookie dough evenly into pan with your fingertips. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the cookie is starting to get golden brown. Cool completely. Spoon half of whipped topping package (4 ounces) on top and spread evenly. Add desired fruit - I used about 5-6 medium sized strawberries and sliced them. Enjoy immediately or cover with plastic wrap and store in fridge until ready to eat.
