Caramel Apple Pizza
So, today was my VERY LAST FINAL EVER!!! And it wasn't even really a final exam... we just went and ate delicious food at my professor's house. It was pretty much the best final. Anyway, I brought this delicious apple pizza that was a big hit. I can't take complete credit for the recipe, as I got the idea from a girl in my student development class. It's pretty amazing though, so I must share.
Sugar cookie dough (you can make it yourself, or I used the pre-made kind. It was delicious)
1 package (8-oz.) cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large granny smith apples
1. Roll out the sugar cookie dough into a crust on a round, ungreased, baking pan. Bake according to directions (it may need to bake a little longer because it is like one giant cookie... mine cooked for about 15 minutes). Take out of oven and do not add anything to it until it is completely cooled.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, peanut butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until thoroughly mixed. Spread this "pizza sauce" onto the sugar cookie crust.
3. Slice the apples into thin slices, and place them in a bowl filled with Sprite in order to prevent browning. Take the apples out and let them dry on a plate covered with paper towels.
4. Arrange the apple slices on top of the "pizza sauce." Sprinkle cinnamon and pour caramel topping over the top. Wait until serving to slice (because it's so stinkin' pretty you won't want to ruin it before you present it!).
