I scored 13 lbs. of apples last week at my favorite grocery store for a little over $4, I don't know about you but that excites me! This was one of the first things I knew I wanted to make with them, it's one of my favorite desserts to make in the fall. It's such a cinch to put together and the girls even loved helping me. You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe or cheat like I did and use refrigerated cookie dough, either way it will turn out delicious! Enjoy!
Caramel Apple Pizza
1 tube (16 1/2 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
3 cups sliced, peeled apples
Lemon-lime soda, Sprite or 7-UP
1/2 cup caramel topping
1/3 cup chopped pecans
Press cookie dough into a greased 14-inch pizza pan. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
In a bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, brown sugar and milk until smooth. Spread over the cooled crust. In a bowl, combine apples with the soda. Drain well. Arrange apples over cream cheese mixture. Drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with pecans. Cut into wedges.
