Beat 2 minutes at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in vanilla and enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Roll dough to 12 x 10-inch rectangle; Prick surface of dough randomly with fork; let rest 10 minutes. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack. When completely cooled, spread cream cheese topping onto crust to within 1/2 inch of edge; sprinkle with granola. Arrange fruits and marshmallows over top to resemble the U.S. flag. Serve promptly after topping. Refrigerate leftovers.
