Open house recipes and recap

Hi everyone! Just finished my one-day open house yesterday and, Whew! What a whirlwind! Glad to see so many people come out to see me in my home. We had many tasty things set out showcasing some of Longaberger's new food items so I thought I would share a recipe or two!
Fruit Pizza:
2 rolls of refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 packet Longaberger White Chocolate Amaretto Mix
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8oz. whipped toppping
Toppings: Strawberries, blueberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple tidbits, almond slivers
Preheat over to 350. Slightly grease the bottom of a Woven Traditions Handled Platter. Spread the cookie dough evenly on the center of the platter, covering the entire bottom (not the sides). Bake 15-20 minutes or until cookie is slightly browned. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese and White Chocolate Amaretto Mix with a mixer until well combined. Add whipped topping and mix well. Spread mixture on top of cooled cookie. Top with a variety of fruit. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. (Recipe submitted by my friend Wendy Smallwood).
Sorry about bites missing! Apparently it was great!
And another recipe, not Longaberger, but a favorite for sure.
Mexican Caviar (Avacado salsa):
2 (15oz) cans black beans, rinsed, drained
2 (11oz) cans Mexicorn (canned vegetable aisle)
3 tomatoes, seeded, chopped
4 avacados, seeded, chopped
1 large red onion, chopped
6 scallions, chopped
1/2 cup vegetable or olive oil
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 envelopes, Italian salad dressing mix (dry mix)
Combine black beans, mexicorn, tomatoes, avacados, red onion, and scallions in large bowl and mix well. Mix the oil, vinegar, and salad dressing mix in a small bowl. Pour over the black bean mixture and toss to coat. Serve with torilla chips. Serves 20-24, can be stored in frig for up to 4 days. Can be easily halved for smaller gatherings...thanks to my friends Sam, Jeni and Mickie for sharing. Yumo!!!
This also went really fast, but we managed to snap a close-up before it was all gone.
I hope you all are doing wonderfully, I am busy running around after a week at the beach in NC. Glad to be back though! Before I run, I wanted to share a picture that a friend/customer and hostess sent from her Back Porch, her summer harvest.. Thanks Nancy Keller from Middletown, MD!
