PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

(adapted from Taste of Home, Farmer’s Market Cookbook)
This always gets rave reviews when I bring it for pot-luck.
2 tubes Pillsbury refrigerated crescent rolls (I used the reduced fat version)
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese softened (I used light)
1 cup confectioners’ (icing) sugar
2 TBSP raspberry jam (the recipe calls for seedless, but I had regular. I don’t think it makes much of a difference)
1 tub Cool Whip, thawed (I used light, 33% less fat. I haven’t tried the 95% fat-free version)
4 medium kiwis (fruit, not the bird or the people) peeled and sliced
1-1/3 cup sliced strawberries
1-1/3 cup raspberries
1-1/3 cup blackberries
1-1/3 cup blueberries
2 sliced bananas
½ cup flaked coconut, toasted

1. Unroll the crescent dough and place in a greased 15-inx10-inx1-in baking pan. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of pan; seal seams.
2. Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and jam until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
4. Spread over crust. Arrange fruit over top. Sprinkle with coconut. Chill until serving.

1. If you are going to use bananas, then put them and the coconut on just before serving
2. The more chilled your dough, the better. I find that rolling out one tube lengthwise on the baking sheet, cutting the second one in half along the middle perforations and rolling one half lengthwise and the other crosswise. Really press those seams. This is one time when I wish I had the pampered chef seam sealer.
3. Check early the crust early and often. You want the crust golden brown and a bit crispy but not burnt.
4. I toast the coconut in a skillet, but you have to really watch it continually. Don't blink, don't sneeze, don't let your attention wander. Stir constantly, when it first starts turning a light colour, stir for a few more seconds, pull off heat and continue to stir for a another 20 seconds or so then remove coconut from pan to a cool bowl. Better yet, find some place that sells toasted coconut and buy it.
