Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly spray a 14-inch pizza pan with vegetable spray. Cut cookie dough into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Arrange in slightly overlapping pattern on prepared pan, covering pan completely. (Flour your hands before you start working with the dough to make this all go much easier.) Press dough together to seal. Make a ridge on edges of crust with your fingers (to hold the filling). Bake until puffed and golden, about 10 minutes. Cool completely.
Combine cream cheese, sugar, 1 tablespoon brandy, and vanilla in bowl. Spread evenly over crust. Arrange fruit in circular pattern over filling. Put berries in center. Melt preserves with remaining 2 tablespoons brandy in small saucepan over low heat. Brush over fruit. Chill for at least an hour before serving.
Fun Fact: More than half of the Atlantic coast's breeding population of great blue herons nests in Chesapeake Bay. The bay, the nation's largest estuary, and surrounding areas provide both the ideal food and habitat necessary for great blue heron survival. As a result, the great blue heron is rivaled only by the blue crab as the symbol of Chesapeake Bay wildlife.
